Viper Capacity Plate
I have a '78 15' Viper that has the Coast Guard Capacity
Plate missing. I don't want to get busted by the IL DNR for not
having one. It was removed by my speed freak dad that used to
own the boat when he had a 200hp Merc. on it (92mph) and added some gauges
and lost it. Do you know how I can get a replacement or even a copy
of one from another boat you have contact with, just so I have something
to show the DNR. I would truly appreciate the info. and help.
you are “S.O.L.” on the plate. The DNR can use the length x width (in
feet) x 2 – 90 formula. 15’ x 7.2 ft x2 – 90 for a 126 hp rating
according to US Coast Guard guidelines.
