Default Re: aluminium punt

Hi Greg,

Since you are in Ireland, we may not call a punt the same thing as we do in the states. Does you boat look something like this picture? Punts usually have flat bottoms and are not built for a motor. You can see in this picture that the transom is not built for a motor. If yours will accommodate a motor I don't think I would go over 5 horsepower.
