My motor gets me up to speed fine. If my knotmeter can be believed I can just barely reach 7.00 kt under optimum conditions. Typical cruise speed would be around 6+ kt without towing a dinghy. I was hoping to get better control when docking and maybe better fuel economy with a high-thrust prop that hopefully slips less.
