The C27 with the 11hp is no ball of fire, and I wouldn't expect to reach hull speed either. Anything above 5 kts at 2/3 throttle would be good.
You have 7000 lbs, and 11hp. That's about half the hp per lb that is considered ideal.
I spent a merry hour learning docking techniques in one. The highlight was when I tried putting throttling up in reverse to stop in a slip, and the throttle lever came off in my hand. Nice work with a snubber avoiding so much as a scratch.
