I am being given a boat, a Spectrum 16'. My question is, it has no motor, Would it be worth the money to buy a small manual steer outboard to get this thing lake ready? it has no steering wheel and is made for a manual steer outboard. Pretty much a fancy JohnBoat.

Boat has only seen the water a handful of times and is an early 90's model. Would need to replace carpet as well.

Thanks for any help, my boat knowledge is minimal and I'm feeling rather lost in this endeavor.
