C.G. hp rating
If I use the formula from the Ranger post : L x W x .8 - 25 = hp rating for a tiller boat I end up with 66.15 for my old 18' 1968 lund SSV. I've also been told that you can be within 10% of the C.G. tag. Both options mean the 60hp I installed fit within limits (tag says 55hp). I don't care about insurance issues just legal ones. Does anyone know for sure what the law is ? I do know that the boat handles the motor just fine. This subject has been discussed many times but I've never seen the legal answer. Thanks for any help.
