I will answer your questions first, than at the end will add some recommendations if I have some.

1. yes
2. yes
3. yes (not finished yet)
4. yes
5. wood over foam, but I like fiberglass hulls.
6. 65 to 115cm
7. Flex cable prop shaft
8. the fuel tank
9. Cat
10. Pond, lake, river
11. 300 to 1000+

Question #7: you could elaborate, the way your boat is or will be powered is dependent of the type of hull you will be using.
