When I first bought the over propped, over diametered prop boat, its top speed was roughly 11.5 knots. When I installed the larger engine my hope was maybe 16 - 18 knots. I have been informed by the engine/leg guru at the Merc headquarters in Wisconsin - name of Jay - my boat should be capable of 40 + mph with the B2, it was hard to stifle a laugh when I heard that.
