Bryce04 is on a distinguished road
Regarding THIRD:

Sailboats are typically a displacement hull meaning they plow through the water rather than skipping along on top of the water like a planing hull. Displacement hulls have a maximum speed they can travel through the water so no, adding more HP will not get you back to the marina any faster. It will just burn more fuel
