i am curious are you basing your conclusion on you knowledge of boats and speed or just your opinion

I would wager LARGE $$$$$$ that BALLISTIC has close to a 220 MPH run in it.

All it is going take is LARGE ONES and a little LUCK.

Just my opinion We didn't have very many fast boats at loto. This one sounds like it is the fastest in the world, can't wait and good luck! Hope it does it, sorry I am a little skeptical. Everyone seems very protective, I have said all along it is a nice boat. Just questioned the 200 #.

After looking at the boat and motor, I decided, I'm going to have to raise my oil change prices..... a lot!!!
hey do you still have the 17 1/2 33 4 blades??? james.
