I have a practically brand new 5hp motor I got for free in my shop. Now my mind is spinning on a way to put it to use. I was thinking a small 10-12 boat that I could run silent. I know it would be a tight setup for two guys. I want somthing wide for stability. What are my options is there cheap 1260 or simalar out there? Or is this just not a good idea?

I suggest a Pelican Bass raider. The stability is awesome and they're rated for small outboards. I shoot two guys off mine with one troller battery and another for my lights. I've got 4 30w Custom Fitz lights and goes just about anywhere.

Here's mine,

I've got a 50 on my 1260. You'd better not be in a hurry with a 5 horse! Lol. I had a 1436 a while back that we got along pretty good with. 1236 will be about all your 5 horse can handle with no load and no current. I feel a 1048 or 848 build coming on!!!
