Assuming:

    --clean bottom
    --dry hull

    --more than 85-percent of original compression
    --properly mounted and rigged with an appropriate propeller

I would expect a WOT speed of 40 to 43-MPH.

There are off-the-shelf above-deck fuel tank models with a remote sender fuel gauge. Above-deck tanks have sight gauges.

One could modify the above deck tank or install a below deck tank and install a fill and vent. Either way it is a fair amount of work.

You might consider leaving it as is.
