There are a few questions you need to answer to get you started:
  1. What kind of hull do you want to run? There are vee, cat and hydroplane with sub-types of each
  2. How big do you want your boat to be? Larger means more power which means bigger engine, prop, etc
  3. How are you going to run your boat? Is it going to be a "fun toy", racer or other?
  4. How big of lake or pond are you going to be running on? Smaller water areas means smaller boat, larger or rougher areas mean larger boat
