If the engine will rev up to its advertised limit and hold it I can't see that any damage will have been done at all. The prop on your boat, I'm sure you know, now turns faster than it did originally. If the engine will not maintain it's limit. or smokes while doing it, or overheats while doing it then a problem has been created and you're going to have to deal with it one way or another.
At 3000 RPM the prop used to turn at 1060 RPM, and now it turns at 1400. Maybe the boat will go faster, but not by much, I'm betting. Once you approach hull speed you have, well, approached hull speed. You're done "going faster".
