Not quite the same here, it would affect insurance here.

I have a 5.25 m Zodiac Pro Open 550. It's shorter than the full 5.5m due to stub end tube design for that model. With a 90 its fast enough but its rated to 115. A 90 gives me about 40 kn lightly loaded at WOT. Acceleration is good and pulls a skier well. 100 would not be over powered on that boat at all.

My Zodiac Pro 530 (5.3m) is plated to 120HP max. There is no max weight but 120's of its era were around the 150 - 170kg so I assumed that it would be fine with that weight on the back. I'll know if i was right when we get some decent weather.
