mate would be ok, an a little 4 hp would be ok on it,be slow but beats rowing and you dont need to row,wouldn't be the most stable boat but would be a great starter boat for the creek,3 in it would prob be a it crowded but still doable,not sure on the outboard prices though i think a new 4 merc is bout 1100
cheers rosco
ps.u dont need to register or have a licence for a 4hp

the main thing with 'lighter' boats is they rock about a bit when you move around in it. Price is good. I personally would get swimming lessons, I couldn't imagine if one of your young blokes falls in and you are unable to aid him. good luck mate, all the best!!
