Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

    There should be a Capacity plate someplace in plain sight. Otherwise you can check online Blue Books for that information based on which model, length, and year boat you have. Abos or Nada.
    Hey, Have you seen? They make Really Cool life preservers nowadays.
    So "Looking Dorky" is no longer an excuse for not wearing one.

      73spd, check the inside of the boat just back of the left side of the windshield and near the dash for the rating plate. From some old mid 80's Bayliner brochures looks like the 1900 Capri Cuddy & Bowrider has a max HP rating of 140, the 1650 Capri Bowrider with Volvo Inboard says 125 HP, the 1600 Capri Bowrider says 90 HP O/B, the 1650 Capri Bowrider says 125 HP with the Volvo inboard, the 1400 Capri Bowrider says 50 HP with the O/B. Hope this helps.

          Thanks GuysI do not own or have a boat.I am looking.I like the looks of the Bayliner Cobra/Capri.Most of the ads I see, these boats have Force 120-125 HP motors. Thats seems small. I just wondered if I could put a 150-175-200 HP motoron one? (17'-19')

            Probably not bigger than a 150 on that model.
