  I'll tell you.

If I get a chance to take my Heron (same boat, but 17'), I'll tell you what a 2.5HP Mercury 4 stroke will make it do. I'll tell you this, when I tested my boat against current with a 55 ft/lbs thrust trolling motor and with the 2.5 HP Mercury, the gas motor was much, much faster.

I haven't taken it to a lake. It's no speed demon, I'll guarantee, but I get about 4mph up current with two people in the boat in an area with fairly strong current. No lake measurements though.
