Northocean, it sounds like fun, do it. I would not get a survey on a cheap boat, it isn't worth it.
Bilkoxi, get a rowboat. There are plenty of aluminum skiffs around, durable, light, stable. Get one of the smaller ones so you can row it. Capacities are listed in the boat. Rowing is easy with a little practice, oars are cheap and require no fuel or repair.
