How does one obtain a CG Plaque to allow a boatyard to install a new +/- 70 HP engine? Let's say you bought the "19' Pointer Plans from Wooden Boat and successfully construct the Pointer. The plans say it will take up to 75 hp. Doesn't it need a C of O to get registered and a plaque to get an engine rigged? I am likely going pick up a 19' fiberglass "project hull" in the next couple of years, however curious about a wood option.

I built a 19’ Ocean Pointer no plaque required.

As usual, comments have helpful. I'm getting David Stimson's book today. I couldn't start until August, so we'll have some time to mull it over. The shape of the Ocean Pointer is exquisite, I just need to figure out exactly where the +/- 700 hours are going to come from. Redoing a 19' Seaway would be easier; however, building a wood boat that will torture my children after I'm gone is definitely appealing.
