19' i/o pulled by 2000 Toy Tacoma. 22mpg without the boat, 13-15 with. Not really going for looks, though.

Seventeen, or fifteen if you can find one. Anything that gets your revs up to a higher hp range at planing speed.

The Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, KY sells their used (empty) 40-gallon whiskey barrels for $20 apiece. You may get splinters, but at least they're self-disinfecting.
