I'm new to this site and I'm planning on building a little speed boat to bring along to the river with my cabin cruiser. I saw on this site that someone posted pics of what looked like a small pickle fork but it had an inboard on it. I have seen the pickle forks with the outboards as well. I think I could get more performance with better parts though by buying a salvaged crotch rocket or snowmobile engine and throw it in a hull and have some fun. I'm not planning on setting any water speed records or anything. What are all your thoughts?
I plan on keeping the boat pretty small..just a two seater maybe 10-12 ft long.
