Colin says: How to go boating - Lesson 2: Size is important. Don't go for an overly large boat. Boats are like cars... they create greenhouse gasses and polute the planet. So choose as small a boat and engine as possible and you'll be storing up pennies in heaven and will be thanked by your fellow man.
