Yes, a 15 hp will get a 14' boat on plane easily, and even if it's loaded with gear. I have all my tackle, 6 gallons of fuel and both my daughters ages 12 and 6 and we still get up to 25 mph according to my GPS. That boat runs like a scalded dog with a 15 hp but it's a semi-vee and weighs around 175 lb. I wouldn't be afraid to take it on the rivers or the upper bay but like you said, staying close to shore.
