I have a small aluminum v-bow, but flat on bottom boat, I just inherited an 8 h.p. motor. The boat says a max of 7.5 h.p. is recommended. I believe it's a 10 foot boat. Is this pushing it to put that motor on? It's an older Mariner, but not too heavy. Second question. The boat has never been registered (it came with the house) to keep the law-dogs off my back, how do I get tags for a non-papered boat?
Thanks in advance.
