Hi,
The best speed is around 6000 rpm for the standard 1 1/2" 40mm prop in a Springer, this will give you excellent power without overdoing it, if your building a more scale like vessel then 4000 rpm might be more appropriate. If your using a larger prop then reduce the speed, the motor you have mentioned is too slow unless the boat has a 4" 100 mm prop.
Regards
