ive been in one with close to 700's that ran 103... lightened up a bit.
I saw the one with merc 600's up here not to long ago and as a 32 lover it was an amazing boat.

There's a friend here locally that has a 32 with 600s that runs 100 plus. The boat runs 78-80 with 502 mpis. Just to 600s that's 400 more HP. That's is worth about 20 mph. That jumps you to 98-100. And he also runs imco -3 in lowers & hering props which takes it to 100 plus.

Would a 97 model be that fast. I figured a newer one would be.
