    yes gonzo. thats what i have in mind right now, a small dinghy. i will scale down my original design (thought) but i have not draw anything yet. and i have two of this 800W engine (generators, so total 2hp), i'll figure out something. thanx landlubber and gonzo for the 800w->1hp conversion. if its turn out the engine are worthless, then i will treat the "waste of time" as "valuable learning process". i'm eager to do this, whether successfull or not, for the sake of learning. @landlubber, i've see many boats and engines and discussed with (well, not so many) experienced people. i kinda of have the rough picture, but this time i dont want to do just "follow the existing" design, i want to do my own "system" but i know i have to follow the general rule/law as it cannot be broken. @frosty, i'm located in semporna, sabah, malaysia.

    Brunei is around 12 hours or more ride by land. not so easy terrain here. Thanx for the info, thats my closest option if i cannot find locally, or within my state. Will keep an eye on the country. If any specific address will be helpful as i never been there and no info in the net.
