maybe nothing if your hull is straight... maybe a lot if your hull is like one of JC's motors...

29 shockwave. It seems to be about 5 mph off what I expected. Their hulls look a little wavy from the sides. I asked Jim Wilkes about this and he said it's because they pop them out of the molds too quickly. Hot Boat says it will do 70 with a 500efi engine.
