Stick a smaller rotax on it and it would fly!

I am surprised that your tiny motor at what I guess to be less than ten HP will even
get you up on plane at 235 pounds if it has a direct drive propeller.

What is the length and width of your boat bottom ?

Can you show us some photos that are in higher resolution? The ones you uploaded
were really just like thumbnails.

Did you get a total weight of the empty boat ? maybe you weighed the boat
before adding engine etc.

Still, I am completely surprised that you could reach 21 mph on anything other
than ice. Good going there !
