No way. Ten years ago a stock 1999/2000 Top Gun flat bottom wouldn't break 75 mph and really couldn't get out of control. Now same boat runs 85-88 with 525's and can very easily spin out/roll with the advent of step bottoms.
Go back 20 years and a Top Gun ran closer to 60.....
Today's technology allows a boat to go significantly faster than ever before. Your 46 RR is 115++ mph boat, twenty years ago race boats of that size/v bottom would struggle to do it once never mind all season long. Today more people are on the water with faster/ more complicated equipment and are getting banged up.
How many non race events have you read about where a new owner/operator of a step bottom went swimming with all their crew members?
