[omc-boats] Swapping in a V6 for a V8

I had an interesting thought today.....I'm working on getting a '70 Dolphin to possibly replace my '70 Seasport. Basically the same boat, but 3 ft longer and with the 307 210 HP V8. Now I have a very healthy 225 V6 155hp, how do you think this engine would perform in the 19' Dolphin? The Dolphin is 500lb heavier, but some of that is engine weight, I wonder how it would do with the smaller engine. Most guys go the other direction, bigger, but I like the little 6's economy. I like to go fast, but don't run WOT all that much. I'd say if I get 32mph or better that is good with me.
