I am looking at this plan for a build next winter:

Want to put a 25-35 HP jet outboard on it. Something like this:

Just wondering if anybody on the forum has had any experience with this combination? I will be running it on rivers with class 1-2 rapids and lots of shallow runs. I would love a sturdy stable platform to take my daughter and aging father fishing.

Also very open to other designs and suggestions.

Thanks,

Ian
