I've got a '62 13 w/ a 40HP'96 Tohatsu (20" shaft). With just myself in the boat stern sits low, but the ride is nice. I've installed a 14 gallon under the front bench seat to help balance out the boat. With dog, wife, 2 small kids, surf board and cooler loaded up, the boat jumps up on plane and the ride is comfortable (as much as can be expected with a small boat). I was running a Tohatsu 12.5 pitch but am now running with a Nissan 15 pitch stainless. I usually cruise at around 22-25mph but can get close to 40 mph with just me in the boat.
