VL, you have a cracking set up there, the 6hp will push you at about 5mph, enough to get you out of trouble. The reason for not having bigger is the maximum weight you can hang on the transom.

You sound as though you have done all the courses and are as well prepared as anyone, what I would advise you is to take someone who knows small boats and the area you intend to fish.

You have a lot to think about if you are going out for the first time, launch, mooring, engines, vhf, navigation, col regs, the list is endless. Someone with experience to keep an eye on you will ease the pressure you will be under and increase your safety.
