I tested the motor in a bun, and was able to het about 5600rpm now. But could only use the warmup lever on the control box. (otherwise the bun would blown away). So it looks like 6P setting did the job!

The boat could handle a max 40HP engine. But my car towing rate does not allow me to make the boat more heavy as it is now(about 300KG). But with the small 15HP engine it perform good.
