What speed

What speed would I get out of an Honda 40hp on the back of a 450 Avon Adventure

I'd estimate about 30-32knts on flat water. The 50 Yam on my 4m got me to 32knts ( with Doelfins fitted) . The longer hull & lower power I'd guess woudl be the same. The last 7 knts will be painful though !
