It is on the edge of being underpowered, but in most conditions will push her along at hull speed. She's gonna be bogging in short chop, though... but, probably no worse than if you slapped a 9.9 OB on her transom. More important than the power of the engine, is the size and pitch of the prop. the right prop can make a big difference.
