you would think surely something smaller than a 39' cat would be fastest. Guess MTI's have the magic hull design, wonder what technology will be next to increase speeds. approaching 140mph with stock 525's is unbelievable. maybe we will see something this season with all the new SCL boats being produced.

Are you kidding? Sort of like saying all V bottoms look alike. They must all be copies of the orignal Cigarettes. You know, now you have me thinking my Ford Dually looks almost identical to my buddies Dodge. Six wheels, four doors, 8' bed, both are 19' long, both have diesels.......

Big assumption that the 525 race boats are "stock"...the engines, weight and balance are all optimumized.

I think your right, the Doug Wright should be a contender, a 525 version is being built now, then we'll see what it will do, until then the MTI holds the title.

The ideal boat would be a Doug Wright laminated MTI hull!
