Ah the voice of reason. The boat is on the hard right now getting a bottom job so maybe I can sleep on it a little regarding the motor size.

Next question for you Siamese, was your inflatable a hard bottom, high pressure floor, slats...? I don't have the dinghy yet.

(Long Story)I used to have a Walker bay 8 but I sold it on craigslist because I didn't think it was big enough for two people, unless they were kids, I was swamped by a boat wake and it was an experience I wouldn't like to repeat.

Any recommendations? Keep in mind my boat is only 27'. Are they really that bad to tow? I like the idea of the small plastic hulled inflatables, but I do think that that would be to heavy for my boat. If I can't plane with 2 people with the 6 hp, then that changes things. I know for sure I'm not carrying a 15 hp around with me.
