Re: New to Boating - Need Advice on Inflatables

Don't underestimate the weight of a 6 to 10hp outboard and what it will take to haul it back and forth every time you want to use the boat. For ease of portability, an 8 foot or so boat with a 4 hp motor might serve better. For maximum performance you can't beat at solid floor inflatable. Cheaper than an air deck at the expense of a bit more time to assemble it.
