same running surface as 32, just set up with bustle with sterndrives, Bling has the boat shown, not sure if Grant is rigging. The first sterndrive had some funky motors in it . I believe after talking to Doug they were more like 650's, boat ran close to 150 after it was dialed in. Grant said it was very fast and felt like it was on rails, handled well, We will have one at LOTO soon.

Try more like low 130s.

I just checked an earlier post, you are right 137mph was there first attempt with that power. they thought it would get to 150 when it was finally dialed in. We still believe mid 130's is attainable with merc 525's.

Fair #'s Grant will find whatever is there. Mojo's a testament to that.

Someone mentioned 180mph.. Bling make sure you consult John T, Jim Dyke or John Cosker if you are going for these speeds. No room for error here.

Good luck with the new boat!! See you at LOTO!!

I'll take one.... but it'll have to be 1100's since I already have one. I have BALLS

3600 yours is already in the mold with the a/c full canopy, twin hatches, tunnel tab, naca ducts, and full carbon 1800lb layup, no one will touch you at loto with those 1100's, we all know they will be juiced up more .
