Power for Mini GT-10

I have a 1986 10 foot fiberglass mini gt boat, its a great boat, (no chips or cracks in the hull), but the 1990 mercury 25 is starting to show its age, Iím looking for something with a little bit more power. Right now Iím running about 42mph on a 10 1/4 x 11 stainless steel prop. Do you have any ideas about what kind of motor/prop I could get so I could add a few digits on to that 42mph?

Try to find a nice used 40 hp for it. It is a little heavier, but be careful and it will work.
