    Hi everyone,
    Just wondering if anyone could help me. I have a couple of 3/4 horsepower outboards and am looking to build a 10 to 11ft boat that I can take down to my local river and occasionally an estuary. I am a complete boat building novice, so would really appreciate some boat designs that let me go as fast as possible, whilst being relatively stable. Thanks!
