    Sure it's possible. Buy or borrow a hand held gps. It'll tell you for sure.

    My uncle has a 14x42 jon with a 15hp mercury on it (the whole rig is probably pushing 20years old now). It'll run mid 20mph top speed with 2 guys and fishing gear in it, so you're more than likely over 20mph, unless you got a mess of weight in her.

    Suzuki used to rate there motors at the prop. Not at the power head like the rest.
    I had a 16 and even on a 1448 Wooden john boat it would run 25 and that was clocked.
    The 16 would run with a 35 Johnson on the same boats.
