Vagabond 17

I recently purchased a Vagabond 17 sailboat with the intent of learning to sail.
ASA classes are in the plan as well.
Trying to research the boat I am finding very little useful knowledge. So I have a few questions.

What size engine would be recommended?
Is a 7 horse to big?

Why no boom vang?
It doesn't have any mount points for one.

Also why would someone drill a hole about 4 inches up from the bottom of the transom?
As a drain hole it would leave several inches of water inside the boat

These are just a few questions I have with many more to follow as I wait for the water to melt.

Thank you in advance..

Re: Vagabond 17

Here is the link to Sailboat Data for your Vagabond 17.

Looks like a nice simple boat.
