Depends on what you carrying and how many people and on a boat that is rated for 40hp a 15 may be small.

I just put a new 15 hp Honda 4 stroke on my 11' Whaler. It's different than my old 2 stroke Tohatsu motor. The top end speed is not as fast. I wish I would have bought a 20 hp, especially when I have a passenger. Hindsight is always 20/20.
