Not really. The MOD 5.4 Seariders had 90hp on them.
Too much power is a controversial subject. Some will say what is on the plate in Hp, some will say kg, some will say if its still on the back its OK and some will say "what about the insurance". All valid points and you need to make your mind up I'm afraid.
To put in perspective I had a 5.5 Humber with a 150hp Optimax with a strengthened transom and a friend has a heavy duty 5.5m Northcraft that's rated for Cat b and up to 175hp.
