I'm close to positive that there's no chance you'll get a 10' dinghy with 4 people in it with a soft floor to plane with 4 hp.

If you paint while it's in the 50's you will find the VC 17 lasts much longer. Put the top back on the can after you've poured some into your paint tray and keep both of them out of direct sunlight....
