Default Checkmate speeds

I'd like to know what top speeds owners are seeing and what their models and configurations are. Sound off!

2000 259 Convincor 72mph GPS with low fuel and 1 person on boat (454MAG 461HP 26 Bblades labbed prop). I am looking forward to seeing what this boat will run w/ 600HP. Hopefully we will find out in 2009!
