In Reply to: How do you figure HP. rating? posted by Rodney on October 15, 2002 at 21:45:59:
Without knowing your transom height, this can't be calculated. The Coast Guard is responsible for governing boat ratings. The law is provided in the Code of Federal regulations. You need Title 33, Part 183, Subpart D, paragraph 53. In other words, 33CFR183.53. If the following link does not work, search for "code of federal regulations" and go to the section described above. You can download the document as a *.pdf or *.txt file.
If you have problems figuring out the calculation, post your transom depth and maybe I can be of more assistance.
By the way, isn't it against the law not to have a plate in the boat in Alabama?
