Recommended Max. H.P. is 40h.p. That said, if it is the older design(before the Smirk, I think 30h.p. is ideal. Also that said, I have heard of people going over the recommended Max. H.P. rating, mostly with 50h.p. What year is you`rs? I have a 71` `13 Sport with a 76` 35h.p. Evinrude 2 cylinder on it and it was great, light and fast and trolled all day! Regards-Jack Graner.

Thank you, Jack
The year was going to be another question it is quite old I am redoing as we speak and am trying to find a serial number on it but am having trouble looking for it.

I would guess the boat is probably around early 80's

Is it white or blue inside? If blue the serial # is on the transonm in front of the engine. On later years the put it on a plate on the top strboard side of the transom. Max is 40 min I would say is 20. The older ones(blue) had slighty inferior foam and transom design so take it easy on it and do a 25 or 30. Newer, 40 is fine so is 30. I had a 25 on my 82 and it did low 30's. I had a 35 on it later and it did about 35. With a 40 maybe 38+ but the more hp the more weight it can handle(people).

Thanks BigShot. The interior is blue, so I will take it easy.
