Default Clutch or No Clutch on new build

So I am building a new Enforcer 46" with a Hanson Pro Mod PUM26.

I am running into a serious debate with myself over running a clutch, the boat will be used as a sport boat but speed is so important to me as my other boat is a silex pro (no clutch).

So what I am asking everyone is simple. On average how much power is lost through the clutch if it is in the 5mph range then I am for sure going to pass on the clutch but if it is less than that then I might install a clutch/Water Pump in this new build.

Thanks for any input.

What it comes down to is how much the clutch slips. If it is fairly tight, you should see little speed loss. If it slips a lot, you will get a lot of wear to go along with a lower speed
