Oh.....I forgot.

The boat is 10,450lbs less that stuff. I forgot the stand-off boxes.....so I'll add 100lbs for that. The total is 12,218.25lbs.....plus anything that might be in the potty tank (which is always nothing).

Hmmm...Looks like the formula will need more ponies for 80mph PhantomChaos traveles like me except 4 people in my boat would = 1040#'s (4 guys ex college linemen) less with the wives, except my wife keeps gaining weight weekly...she's with baby!!!

hotboat said "my 38 fountain will go 83 mph on gps and not a mile faster i hear of guy with the same set up going 88-89-and aguy that said 92 ha ha bull**** "

I hear that - cracks me up. I've got a 28' Powerquest, 502 Mag. Factory says 65-67 mph with this setup. I see 65-66 with a quarter to a half tank of gas and one person on the boat. Couple other guys on this board have the same boat and see similar speed. So I'm cruising boattrader (I'm selling) and I find an ad from a guy in Kentucky, same boat, same power, 72 mph! He must have the best running 502 Mag Merc ever put together... Either that or it's the white lightning...

Hey Nort, I'm confused.

So then, do you use your potty holding tank or just go in your "depends"?

I agree, I had a 62 mph boat that could run along side a 75 mph boat of the same type. Hmmmmmm....

Did ya ever notice, that beer makes boats go faster? The more beer ya drink, the faster your boat goes.

Mark-

Of course it goes faasssssster. There's less weight with less beer! Actually....the 75 is right on as stated. But with minimal gas /water / people....I get almost 80. Not bad for a condo on the water.

There's one piece of equipment that slows down every boat that has it - the GPS

Just leaving the damn thing at home gets me 2-3 mph, easy...

Yeah.......the GPS. Too much weight! Throw it overboard and gain 5MPH.

96vyper,
The "Honest Brew" runs an honest (on GPS)76 mph fully loaded with fuel and Molson and 4 people, got 78 mph out of it this spring(cold air, dense water)but I'm only running 28' pitch Bravo I's. Gonna try having the wheels lab finished and tweaked to 29" and see what happens. I have to say that the newer Avengers run great, smooth, no chine walk, the problems they had with the 98-99 are gone.
