There are not many ribs that get too far past the 45knt mark.
Mines been clocked at 46knt Matey, buddy, chap

Slightly contrary to the owner of the Scrote Boat...

Maximus achieved 36-37 knots at around 5000RPM without going to WOT on Saturday running a 17" Viper prop. SO I reckon that prop will see 40-41knots when at WOT. If it can pull an 18 or 19" prop then 45 knots could be achievable
