A have RIB 450 ( 15") weight 300 pounds, suzuki motor DF 50 PS weight 240 pounds, propeller type S1400 3 x 11 3/8" x14' .My max speed is 45km/h on the lake and 50km/h on a sea. Is this too slow?

This is a boston whaler forum, not RIB.

In any event, install whatever prop allows you to get close to the maximum RPM specified by the engine manufacturer, without going over. Your speed will be whatever it is.
