would adding 5 HP make much difference?

My boat is rated for a 40 horse . I had a 25 for years and went to a 30 horse. I had problems with it so I bought new motor and it was a 25. There is a bit of difference but I wouldn't bother to loose money over the idea if it were me.

I say if you want to go as big as you can, Do it! If you know your 25hp, then you will notice a difference. It might plane out quicker, who knows, but do it if you want to. I would max out my boat right now if I wanted to spend the money. Right now I don't. You will notice a difference.

I agree with what everybody below said with one caviot. If you are upgrading an old motor to a newer one, if may be worth it. My son has a 16' boat rated for a 30hp (I think). He had an early 80's vintage Evinrude 15 HP. I upgraded him to a late 90's vintage 25 HP. Granted that is a bigger HP increase, but the new motor is way stronger than the older one.
