    Default Switching motors

    I have an 84 Bayliner Trophy, it has a 50 hp force engine on it, I also have a mercury 115hp engine that is actually lighter than the force, I was wondering if it would be possible to change the two out, if so would the mounts be the same and how big of a mess would the wiring be?

    First off,is the boat rated for a 115 ? Could get you a ticket.
    The 115 is lighter than the 50?? Pics please?
    The mounting holes won't match The cables and wiring won't match.
    So lots of work and new shifters etc.
    The only thing that will hook up is the steering.J
