When l was buying the engine, l posted on here about the hp rating on the boat. The general opinion was that the extra 1.8 hp over the max rated engine hp would not be an issue.

I spoke to my boat insurers, and they were not concerned either. The hull is rated to 17mph and above this speed it is perfectly stable, but becomes harder to steer.

I tend to stay at about 15mph on the rare occasions we are somewhere that allows higher speeds. Even in the estuary at Fowey there was a 6mph speed limit.
