Hey Jim,

Good to hear from you. I top out at 100 with my trip 850's. Looks like you may be getting a little more than me.
Tom Camissa's 50 "Rip Tide" with NT trip 1000's tops out at 110 I believe but Tom is not real aggresive. Terry can probably confirm that number. I'm thinking to run 120 you would need 1200 Sterlings or something in that range.
The other way to get there of coarse is to build a lighter boat and you probably know they are now doing a kevlar layup.
Bob

Damn Bob you the man on your mechanics, I know your a great guy but how do you come about a mechanic in a bathing suit, you must have some pull with the florida powerboat club. come see us at loto sometime, I'm sure Predator would get some serious looks at party cove especially with a boat full of your mechanics. be cool, see ya soon Jim
