Power for OD18

Would a 20 hp outboard be suitable for an od 18, i will be fishing on inland lakes with a max of 2 people, will the 20 hp get the boat on the plane, and what would be the best shaft length short or long?

Stringers on OD18

I will be building an OD18, the plans say the stringers are made from 2"X6" or you can use laminated ply.Can i get away with using 2 strips of 3/4" ply that will make the stringers 1 1/2" x 6 or does it have to be 2" thick?
cheers.........james.
