There should be a Coast Guard registration plate that recommends a maximum horse power rating for that boat. If there is none, the rating in the range of 200 to 300 HP is enough. IF you are sure of the length 300 HP is pushing it.

I have a mecury outboard motor ser# B169012 can anyone tell me what year and HP it is and any other info you might have thanx


You need to know the horsepower, as some of the B numbers are repeated on various engines. The HP should be on the serial number plate. HP is listed on the chart, and you can also tell the maximum HP which should be on a sticker on the boat itself. For instance my 16 foot Boston Whaler says Max HP is 60HP, so I would be looking for an HP designation on the label that may say 40, 45, 50, 55, or 60.

Should have bought a 225/250 hp. Not quite enough power for my 23 foot center console. Is there a "chip" or something to get some more HP out of this motor?


Probably but most likely will shorten engine life. Change of prop to one that will cope with higher RPM if there is such a thing, may allow higher engine revs, therefore, more horsepower. If it's an inboard engine. If outboard talk to your dealer.
