    Best iteration of " the ( bolger ) box " I have yet seen.

    That is downright elegant! I love that banjo wheel, but too bad about that modern engine control -- it sticks out like a sore thumb :(

    May be a tad overpowered with that 30, but the plans show a two seater; maybe the extra power will be useful with four souls aboard....

    I guess you could use what you have ....within reason.

    Bolger specified 25 hp....

    25HP (short shaft) drives her 30-32 mph. With 7.5 HP minimum she will make 12 mph and cruise at 9 or 10.
