Default Max HP for this 12' V-Hull?

This is my 12' V Hull I bought off Craigslist in the hudson valley area last spring. Took it up to the adks with a 5hp outboard. Thinking of picking up a 2 stroke 10hp outboard for it though. It doesn't have the hp rating on the HIN # plate. . .

What do you guys think?

Also the seats in the picture came with the boat, but they make the boat to top heavy and unstable in the water. Would be nice to have some back support though, any suggestions?

Also plan to get that ugly paint job off this spring. I figured using paint stripper mixed with flour applied to the hull, then after lettting it sit for 3 hours and hitting it with a pressure washer would do the job. The guy in this video demonstrates what I'm talking about. I've heard of people using grind wheels though. . .

What do you guys think?

I have a similar boat and use a 15hp 2 stroke motor on it, but it's a very light motor for a 15 hp. You should be fine with a 10.
