Good question.

32 V with 500 EFIs 88mph.

37 V with 500 EFIs 81mph.

Not potatoe chips. Just good ol' fashion offshore boats.

The Dominator hull is not a full step, it only runs through the 1st strake (maybe 15-18 inches). The SS hull was a true twin step hull. The Dominator hull is also a padded hull which will give you a faster ride.

Just as Carrol Shelby used to say, " Aerodynamics is just a poor excuse for not enough horse-power."... Then he went to LeMans and found out the Cobras wouldn't go past 150 until they built a coupe and streamlined it.

With equal power, length & weight, nothing is going to be faster than the Velocity. That pad bottom ain't for amateurs though.

Steve
I still don't know what a padded Fountain bottom looks like?
My 42 non step goes down to a V from bow to stern.
Explain what I can't find.
Thanks,
Mark
