Larry wrote in a letter:
My boat is a 14' DD 1156 runabout. I believe the boat is probably a 1949 model. In 1950 AeroCraft went to a 15" standard transom height. Before I raised and strengthened min to 15 1/2" this one was 13 3/4"
I've run motors from 5 to 40 HP on mine. 5 or 6 will plane the boat, however it can be a handful above 35 MPH.
