Default 38 Top Gun w/525's

What is a realistic top speed for a 38 Top Gun, stepped hull with 525's I was talking to someone this weekend and they were saying they were running 109 with this combo....I didn't think this combo was but mid 90's at best.....not trying to start any huge debate, just curious.

Mid to high 80s on a TS, only exception would be one of the original F2 Top Guns which were a few ticks faster.

I think you know I've been checking into them too Bear and everything I've been told is what these guys have said, things being stock 525 and equal, seems 86-88 depending on all the normal factors, temp, fuel, water conditions, pretty fair numbers for a boat that size, that's why a TS TG appeals to me for these runs down here,............... do you need to tell me anything, good luck.

The speeds everyone is quoting is what I thought, this one person kept trying to tell me his ran 109....I tried to be reasonable after 5 or 6 times saying bull****, thinking maybe my estimate was wrong, but from what I see here unless it has 700 plus HP no way...
