Question
Hi There,
What is the biggest size motor you can use on a 14.5 foot Fiberglass half cabin.
As we just went and bought a 235 Evinrude for it.
Will that be to big / heavy for that boat.
Cheers
Robyn

Answer
There should be a coast guard plate in the inside of the boat somewhere ...

It will tell you the model, make, year and max HP   for the boat in question....

Stay to that rating,  do not over power it .....  take from experience.....

good luck
