I bet that damn flybridge is slowin' me down about 8mph?
So If I ripp it off, I will be well over 50mph W/O a power upgrade. Not bad for a 36'X12' with little power.

Sure if I put 4 (275) Verados on my cat......
I will be faster than that 38 Fountain....
So why cant I put my boat in the same catagory?
Faster & much better ride.

Well.............Look at the bottom paint? It is only about a
foot high from the bottom.....When the boat gets on top, it
jumps onto the bottom chime, which is about 4 inches from
the bottom......So there is no drag and you are WAY! on top
of all the slop!!! So I dont see how This rig is Displacing
water???? There is a small pad at the back, so it may very
well jump onto the pad......So I dont see why it cant do 100mph with the right power...LOL LOL......The tunnel is 7 feet wide, so it will become a big WING at high speeds.
Infact "LIGHTSPEED" was talkin' about putting a pair of I/Os...
Maybe twin 496s with Bravos.....The only thing missing is
a pair of steps to air out the bottom and reduce friction.....
ill have the fastest SLED around with a 12' beam....
Or might I say BARGE!!!! LOL
