Glen L15 transom strengthening for an outboard

Have Glen L15 build in 1974. Had 7.5HP outboard on it last year and want to use 15HP motor this year. Do I need to install a transom knee for this motor? I know the newer 15's can use 15 HP outboards....wander if they are build differently, my boat is build with 1/4" planks I installed 3/4 oak brace...

Re: Glen L 15 motorboat

We wend for a boat ride on friends boat...15' runabout with 80 HP motor...we were zooming all over the place.

Re: Glen L 15 1974

....... have my Seagull Forty Plus (2-3 HP) on the boat. Max speed with the tide was 5mph.
HP recommendation is 7HP per designer.
I am trying to find out what the max speed with 7HP motor would be.

Here is video......
