Hey guys wondering how the hp rating works?
I have a Bayliner trophy that is 5.5 and it's rated to a 150 what's the deal if I wanted to put a 175 on it?
Does it bight me in the arse somewhere along the line???

I know of guy that put bigger out board than what was recomened , He put a suzuki that weighed the same as what was recomened . At the time he had a yamaha . BUT i dont know if that was legal to do. so or will it efect his insurnace. I also seen a dominator at portland with twin 150 yammies. He said he had his boat rebuit with 200 kg of fibreglass put in the hull and had tanson rebuilt to suit the motors :mrgreen:

Well, even if the boat handled a bigger motor than recommended, It sure is an inarguably out for any Insurance co.
