Default Hewes LT... F115?

So, I've got a 1994 Hewes LT (20') with an old carbureted Yami 130. Hate the motor. ALWAYS having trouble with the carburetors, and I don't have time for that sht. Have a Merc 115 4-stroke I can hang on her, for free. Yes, I know everyone is gonna say she'll be underpowered. But really, how much difference can it be sans 15hp? And that old (1994) 130 probably ain't running at full 130hp anymore anyway. I mean with the right prop she should at least be a 30mph boat, with a "good enough" hole shot, no? Wondering if anyone out there has ever ran this boat with a 115?
