I can also claim a honest 75 with fuel and people on board. Absolute perfect conditions I have hit 80. These are GPS figures for a 380 Avenger.

I had a dealer-mechanic tell me the 35 Nordic heat w/ THP500EFI's goes low ninety's. I call bullsh%^ on that one. Maybe low 80's.

See, you guys are cool. I can believe a 38' boat with 500 EFIs can run an honest 75 on gps. But when some little guy with a big boat tells me his boat is the best hull ever (38' Hustler) and it will run 98 on gps, I think he is tring to make up for something.

Hey-

It looks like www.hotboat.net did a test. I don't think it had stand-off boxes, but it shows 79.8Mph with HP500EFI's. Take a look at this link....they have a ton of boats on there.

F-2 racer ( throttleman )in the National Points race, says his 388 slingshot runs mid to high 80's, claims boat out of the factory runs 80mph, period.

96Vyper - To paraphrase PhantomChaos:

My 2000 FASTech 382 with 600DPX's will do 105MPH in the ocean, but I've never seen it do that. That's because I have the following:
200 gallons of gas = 1300lbs
20 gallons of fresh water = 160lbs
24 waters (12oz) = 18lbs
4 Bottles of wine = 12lbs
10 Diet Pepsi's = 9lbs
1 Bottle Captain Morgan = 4lbs
2 people = 400lbs
1 generator = 500lbs
1 TV/VCR = 50lbs
1 900W entertainment system = 35lbs
1 Refrigerator = 75lbs
1 7000BTU A/C unit = 150lbs
1 Potty holding tank = depends
1 60amp battery charger = 35lbs
1 Set of tools = 15lbs
1 Coast guard kit with flares = 3lbs
1 Anchor w/250' 1/2" line and 8' chain = 25lbs
1 Anchor w/150' 3/8" line and 3' chain = 15lbs
8 PFD's = 4lbs
1 Set of extra boat keys = .25lbs
1 Box of spares = 10 lbs
1 Bucket of cleaners, etc. = 20 lbs
5 Overnight bags (1 for me, 4 for her) = 80lbs

So.....with somewhat wrinkled props, I get 79MPH an GPS. If I start unbolting things and tossing them overboard, who knows? I just may see 105.

A friend of mine has the identical boat as C-Spray with Volvo 600's and DPX drives.
I have ran next to this boat a number of times. The winner is usually the one with the least amount of fuel in the tank. As a reference, I can run 81 when low on fuel, and around 78-79 with a load.

Guys, just for the heck of it, what does the 382 run with triple 500's or does the 382 fastech not allow triples?

Was the 419 the only Formula with triples?

No triples on the 382. Only the 419 (now discontinued for 2001) has the triple setup.
