If you go to:http://continuouswave.com/whaler/reference/16-17/repower.html
You'll see the predicted performance for outboards on a Montauk from 50-90hp. You should be able to get an idea of what you'll be looking at.
Also, you can do a search on the topic and there are several who have used 40's. (I think)

Back in the days of powerhead rated HP, Boston Whaler published 35HP as the minimum for satisfactory performance from a 16. The prop-rated 40 probably makes 45-48HP at the powerhead.
I would expect it to plane with a medium load and do high 20s to low 30s WOT with an ideal prop.
