I think the hull will end up weighing too much for a 6-7” prop to pull. 3pz cloth plus st least two coats of resin to fill the weave decently is going to weigh it down quite a bit.

A piston ring made for a Chinese G51 won’t fit an Italian G51. The bore of the Chinese .51 is slightly larger than Italian .51. Just one example of them not being identical.
