9781332336548: The Motor Boat: Its Selection, Care and Use (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Motor Boat: Its Selection, Care and Use

The cheapest and simplest form of motor boat is the converted skiff. A substantial rowboat of the St. Lawrence model may be bought for from twenty to forty dollars, and for the expenditure of another forty or fifty a one or two horsepower motor may be obtained and installed - thus making a craft which should be able to carry three or four persons at a pace much faster than that of rowing and with much less exertion - unless the motor should prove to be balky. The best results will probably be obtained by something near a two horsepower motor in a boat of this type, as any power in excess of that would set up such a vibration in the hull that a ride in such a craft would be far from pleasurable.

Akin to the motor skiff, and yet of lighter weight and consequently of greater speed for the same power, is the ordinary canoe, strengthened and braced for the installation of the engine.
