    Our 14' has a 90 on it. Runs up to 55 easy using very little gas.
    A 150 might be a bit heavy, and require a great deal more seat time to air it.

    Merc 850xs is period correct and a great engine. OMC 75 short would also be good.

    I'd have someone check out the core and transom before trying to go fast. It's a very old boat.

    I would try a relatively new Yahaha 90. Good power, not too heavy for a small boat, and should be reliable.
