On the weekends 85-90 is all you want bvecause it is so crowded and rough, you just wont run 125mph but maybe twice a year there.
I disagree. You don't buy a Nortech which is one of the hottest looking boats out there to have 80% of the boats out there pass you by. Nothing ruins your day quicker then having your A$$ kicked. That's why Corvette, Lamborgini and Ferrari don't have an optional 4 cyl engine! I have 2 friends with 36 Nortechs with 525's. Both of them are currenty upgrading to bigger power because they are tired of showing up 30 minutes after the rest of us.

I was just suggesting a warrantied, reliable, yet still insurable option, and if the boat is to be used at loto for weekend use then the 525/arneson which should be a 110+ mph boat would be plenty of power and more speed than you can safely run. Depending on where you are located on the lake you cant run any faster due to traffic. If the boat is going to be used on the poker run circuit or the owner needs to be up at the front of races then go with big power, that is if you can get insurance and afford it. for poker runs the Nortech 850's are a nice package, however I believe that boat has #6 arnesons on it which I believe are rated at 750hp. the 850's will push you close to 135mph.. just trying to help with your decision

Ky lake is very long plenty of room with no traffic. Just a few water-flees & fish-heads

Why detune? Just don't turn the 7200rpm and they should last for a little bit. It's just the 110 octane. $$$
