There are a lot of new cats out there with single 525's that cannot hit that kind of speed. Some of them are really light too. There is something to be said for the efficiency of the Tuff28 hull and that X dimension/Drive/and prop set up. Especially when you look at the gear ratio and prop pitch. It would take a long time to get up to that kind of speed with only 525 HP pushing it, so the hull must be very driver friendly.
Like I said before,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Great Job.

I just had a customer that went 106 mph w/ 926hp and the boat weighs 4400 lbs. Get that boat racing in OPA in Pt Pleasant and Ocean City IN 2008.

Can you test this in that boat for me please...I've been having set up issues and want to remove the engine from the equation

Seems like you have your set up dialed in. Wonder how fast it would go with 1100 HP?
Wow; Just for fun I applied the speed calculator at 1100hp and it says ...137mph.

Jigsaw89- In a close wind chop, I find it to be the same as a cat, as long as you can keep powering it forward and stay on top your good. once you fall inside, all you speed goes away.

Rotorhead; Ted, I can't wait to see the video in high rez. I loved the long wheelie shot of your TUFF 21.

Actually the Canabuck was worth $1.07 US on Friday. Remember a lot of what goes into Mark's boats come out of the USA, Mercury etc. so the stonger CAN dollar will go further in building the boats. I think the impact would at best just add a couple of points. Some builders / manufacturers are eating the difference. It will all get sorted out.
