it really depends on how much runtime you want on a tank. Id imagin you wont get very much out of a single 4oz tank with a 21

I get about 35-40 minutes of runtime on a single 16oz tank with my cat.

depends on what your plans are for the boat. If its just a fun runner (not something you will be racing), id go with at least a 8oz, maybe even a 12oz so you get a good bit of runtime before having to fill up again.
