GLH, according to the end of tiger-whine2 video, looks like you were not going fast at all if the speedo is right ! either not looking at the right gauge for speed, or, you added v-8 backgrond sound on a standing still video shot of the dash! So, were you really on the lake today ?

Pidot tube on the speedo is out from the Key West ride last November so reading on that is 0...new one is on order.

The GPS right beside it has a big old MPH number on it so that's good enough for me.

Yesterday was a tad flat for top speed run with my "old technology" straight bottom boat... there was a little chop (6" maybe) up around the ferries at Cumberland head and that got us our best MPH on the GPS.

Waves were good for the pontoon boat crowd like Tantrum and all...

That looks like good high speed water to me GL The problem with your Cig and that "old technology" is that those straight bottoms come covered in velcro from the factory
