:D hi ian if u phone lancing marine they will do a calculation for u and tell u wot prop size u need and wot top speed e will get out of ur vessel,remember its not always the size of the prop that matters but the pitch of the prop.
i hope this helps.

It will be down to prop size and pitch and I am unsure just what the engine will take. A marine engineer would be better qualified to give you sound advice

they will also need to know the ratio of your gearbox but i would say the speed you are getting is about right for a soggy log
