This one ran 140 on radar with 850's.




Four of 'em .

Of course the boat weighed over 17,000 pounds!

There will soon be a 40+ v-bottom that will exceed 130 with 850's, almost completed, stay tuned.

Question

Which one of Fountain and Outerlimits would be easiest to handle in choppy waters at that speed? That's alot more important when your are to pass your friends out there in the sea than if the boat runs 128 or 131 mph.

Which is the best choise??

Taboo ran 118 at seneca lake poker run(pirate's run)on radar,I was there...2 attempts...even water cond. temp. and 100 other factors wouldn't have gained 18 mph...the one thing u are correct about is the 1075's
