Glades Cat is correct on both counts.

There are no such plans available in the public domain, and 16' is a good sized airboat.

Probablement, au moins doubler votre estimation d’origine.

Hello! You think 300hp?

I have in the reduction the size of the boat in 14.5"

Weight of the only hull(shell) without engine without just driving chair the hull(shell) how many horses it is necessary and how many people on the boat? Thank you the friends

My 300 hp minimum guess was in reference to your initial 16' projection and its load.
If you cut back to 12' and minimize your load, then your 150 hp could work if you keep it light.

Be aware that the Glen-L you linked above, is not built or braced enough for such an engine.
I've not seen those plans, but you are talking around three times as much power.
You will need to add a frame or two and/or beef up the stringers you mount the engine to.

How does your engine compare with that VW engine as far as weight goes ?
Ultimately, the success you have will be contingent on the never escapable, power/weight ratio.
