Used to have pretty much same boat once. Used a 15 on it was absolutely fine. Would have flown with 20. Wouldnt go any bigger esp if using a 4 stroke - the transom is old and probably wouldnt like the weight!

I had one with a 25hp two stroke on it and it was a blast.

How do you plan to use the boat? Will you be trailing it, or packing it away each time? Anything above 15hp is getting a bit heavy for regularly manhandling.
