I did say 40ish!
Blue Ice (and I am sure Richard will correct me if my memory is a bit hazy) tops out at around 45kts and thats a 7.5m with a 200 outboard. Lighter weight than a diesel so I reckon the additional 40 hp wouldnt make that much odds.
Are we talking new or secondhand boat? I do recall a grey 7.5m Scorp with bucket seats and a yam 240. Last saw it a few years ago off South Devon.

Our 8.5m with 315Hp Yanmar + B3 ('Bojangles') does about 47-50knots as i recollect - i sound vague as i don't really look at the GPS when we're at speed!
