Don't know, not familiar with that boat. My 10 foot pram will plane with a 6HP motor on it. My guess is that with the 2HP Honda, two people plus fishing gear the total weight is about 550 lbs and the hull shape slower than the fourteen foot Javelin? In any event the 2HP is very adequate for us against current and a moderate chop, not fast but it gets us there. Have had it for many years, run hard, no problems. Lots of choices out there now.
