Advice please

I had bought a 4m Fyran boat that currently has a 1987 Yamaha 40hp fitted, the engine needs new coil packs. Due to the age of the engine I was thinking of replacing it, I need some advice please, would a new 30hp 2 stroke be ok power wise?
The boat will be used for firth of Thames and west coast harbour fishing as well as in the Waikato river duck shooting.
Appreciate any advice as this is all new to me.
Cheers,

Hi i had a 4.2 pontoon so a bit heavier than a fryan , i had a 30hp on the back of that , top speed 50kms , and was quick off the mark , so a 25hp to 30hp would be fine .
