I used to live near Deal when I was very young. Have vague recollections of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway?

Iv dun concession test and 125 in each and tryed to props and the best iv got is 14knots and boat is good for 22knots with a 25hp on it 

I personally would have thought that a bit optimistic. 
Are you reaching the stated rpm for the engine?

If it helps... I had an Orkney Coastliner with a Honda 20hp on it. Smaller engine and smaller boat. Best I ever had was 12kts.

I'm sort of agreeing with Jon, 14kts with a 25hp isn't too bad for a semi-D hull like yours.

14 knots for that boat and engine doesn’t  sound too bad. Have you previously achieved better in the past or is that what you have been told to expect?
