Top speed

Hello! I write from Italy, just introduced myself in the other section.
I have a 2000 Excalibur 26 with Merc 502 engine. I bought the boat in a river place and it was without anti-fouling paint. In sea water i touched 59 mph at the begin. Now I must paint the hull and it seems that I lost 5 mph... Can anyone confirm that this is normal and the speed are good/normal?
Thanks a lot
