Brand new to offshore boats and you want to run 90? Please let me know when you're on the lake, so I can stay at the dock.

I agree with dockrocker maybe you should get some seat time in something a little slower to start or find some friends to ride with a bit, please don't just jump in some hot rod and try to go out wave CRASHING!!! the water is very unforgiveing

either of these should do 90 if you put the right power in them!

I was thinking the same thing. Someone said it already but a 24 Pantera is a good starter boat. 60-70 is a good starter speed NOT 80-90. Good luck PLEASE be safe.
