Zodiac classic Mk2C. 3.8 meteres with 15 HP 4-stroke.

I consistently get 21 MPH (33.8 km/h) with 2 BIG adults, and lots of gear.

Have been considering upgrading the 15HP to a 30HP, and would LOVE to know what that would mean for top peed, and time required to plane (which is a chore with the 15HP)

That's a big motor for a SIB. I'd expect it to be faster than that.....
