Phil.....we ran in the high 80's and mid 90's depending on the water conditions and the amount of fuel we had left. Remember that the best speedo's were Nordskog with pitot tubes hangng down....not exactly GPS accuracy.

The motors we ran in the end of the 70's and early 80's were right around 650 to 700 HP each on AV gas.
