Ericson 28; Is 10 hp O.K.?

I asume the boat has a Westerbeke 10 in it. It''s underpowered. I have a Ericson 26 with a 7.5 YANMAR in it and it ok in calm water but can''t push tru heavy seas. Later model 26''s had a 10 HP in them. I think a YANMAR 2 GM with 14-16 HP is the way to go for these boats. Some 28''s had Universal 11''s in them , stillthis is not enough in bad conditions.
