The 26 cc Homelite engines are not the best to use as they are crappy engines. Not as good as the 25-30 cc engines but will work. For a prop size Prather S 260 2 blade. The hull should be 48" long.

Online is the best way to shop. You will need a turn fin as well as a prop.

You have a lot of work ahead of you. Don't buy stuff you don't really need. If you don't know ask. Use every part of the trimmer head tank, throttle cable, flex cable. Keep mounting brackets for the motor simple and light weight. Weight is your biggest enemy when building a boat.
