now that I have 50 boat motors I need a boat. I live away from water, so it must be small and trailerable. any one have any advice. anything to avoid? who makes an old style little fiberglass boat? Maybe one of the repro steam engine lauches would work. I don't want fancy, just something to play with.

16 to 18 feet will hold a respectable motor. The boat may be a vehicle in which to display the motor as George Boley said(?), but jewels should not be displayed on vinyl IMO! Wood or rivetted steel/iron is what you need. Look for a old lifeboat in the 16-18 foot range maybe?

Hi, I just put a 4hp atlantic in a N.J. surf boat and it is a perfect match. Although the boat is glass which some will froun on it is a clasic design 17 ft. It looks and runs great. These boats are available for about $600 used I know of two that recently went for that. They also trailer well. Back when they were wood the fishermen installed many engines. I used the same method. If you're interested I can send a few photos.

Sounds great. Post some photos here. The NJ surfboats were a development of the Seabright Skiff. Many of those had inboard engines installed.
