(staggered 800's Konrad Ace drives) I'm sure the 100 mph mark is no problem with the right set of props and more experience behind the wheel.
The Velocity had no bad manners at all. No chine walk, no porpoising, just a sweet ride. Nice design, very impressed.

Kurt, we had the houseboat directly to the left of the Velocity display. Had the chance to look over the 41 with the Konrads/Bandits looked like a nice setup, and sounded great. BTW, Did you guys run in the P/R? I thought a yellow velocity passed us nearing the second card stop. We were rollin 85-90 in the 35' Nordic from Franks Marine when the boat came around us. -Scott

Take that 3,000 horsepower and put it in a pad-bottomed Velocity 41 and it would run 160.

Yes, we ran but started a bit late. The Velocity crew did a real nice job putting it together. As I said above, no bad manners at all. Glad you liked it, they've been fantastic to work with.
