From my understanding at least 5 mph. However, it depends on your prop set up as well. If you are already at the rev limiters you will see zip improvement.

I read somewhere that the swept skeg really only helps at high speeds, 95-100 +.... And on lake champlain at that speed you were hardly in the water and Byrd was holding on for dear life...
