with a set of 4 blade Bronson Hill props I would say 82-84 depending on the weight of the boat. Of course with a fully loaded cabin it will be on the lower end.

Oh, yea, you can still run at that speed in 5-6 footers!

Should be about 5-10 MPH slower than a comparable Fountain!

If the boat has a 1.5 gear in it depending on weight Waterspeed is right 82-84 mph @ 5250 rpm with 10% slip. It is an awesome running boat and has great rough water prowess. Congrats on the purchase.

i like 47 thats what i was thinking.
thanks to all who reply.
im deffinetly pumped up about this boat, cant wait to run it.
the one thing that i am happiest about, is not having people running
down the dock screaming your boat is sinking.
