Very interesting. Thanks for posting. Think I would take the precaution of having a couple of large bailing buckets on board!

 :) He he...maybe some foam board insulation panels sandwiched between thin plywood....

Would be a cheap build ...1.5 HP Briggs is recommended , I would just put in a 4.5 Briggs horizontal shaft off a mower ?

Wow  Roderick , you have a lot of pictures .
Must have taken years to collect all those !

That looks a lot like an old Lister D  or similar old stationary engine fitted to that boat.

I had wondered before if those engines could be used .They do look a little heavy , but nice and slow turning.
Thank you for the links!
