Whew! That was close! Now all I have to do is sell the boat and house! I'm sure it'll be worth it though!
I believe my magnum (not MAGNUM) has you beat at about 40mph. It rides like a tank though.
I hope to relinquish this title next year with a 502 or JATO rocket motors. Whatever it takes to go 60+.
BTW, the bow rail is gone already, the orange paint is being removed as we speak and the too-tall windshield is next on the list
Shanes, 24 Skater I heard is pretty slow!!!!
...with or without the bimini top up?
Hmmmm....27 mph cruise-does that get me slowest??

i think I might be a good one to enter this contest.. new shoot out class for LOTO.
You can't qualify for the slowest boat award with a cruiser. That's cheating, dude.
I'm right with you- 43MPH on a good day. Similar rigs, too. Now everyone knows why I have "arks" as my screen name.
I'm not too far away from you (Chester Co., Pa.). I usually run around the upper Chesapeake.
