Here are some of the statistics of the USCG 40' Utility Boat. It is not a USCG Cutter, as cutters are 65' long or longer, with messing and berthing facilities for a permanently assigned crew. The 40' UTB was in service from 1950 to the mid 1980's.

40' LOA
11' 2" Beam
3'2" Draft
Main engines - 2 Diesels (GM 6-71 rated at 190 HP @ 2,000 RPM)
Max Speed - 23 Knots
Cruise Speed - 18 Knots

Based on the numbers you provided in the first post, the model is roughly 1:16 scale. Actual speed to produce a scale wake is 4.5 mph - 5.8 mph. Now for some pictures.
