I had one with twin 420's. It would go a little over 70. I bet a single 700 would do about the same with less weight and less drag. You'll need an XR with all of the good aftermarket parts to live behind that engine. $$$$

There was a Scarab Panther that was converted to a single here in NJ. I saw pictures but never saw it run.

I think they had to either widen the strakes or make them smaller....not sure...

The boat weighs around 8500 with big blocks and TRS.
