137 would be bad azz. Do it. do it. do it.

Hell, I'm thinking with my 600sci and an extension box, that hull would break 100.

I would like to see one with an Illmor 710, an extension box and some more x dimension.... plus a few more tricks and go for 110.
Remember this is a REAL28'4" boat with no beaks or swim platforms. It has great spanning ability for rough water and a sharp entry to flatten the waves, long before the pad hits.

Thats no joke. 137 in a single engine stern driven vee over 25' long would be a hell of an accomplishent. I would go for 123 mph first

Holy $hit!! Thats some great speed for a 525 and a 28 ft hull! I have a 24 Fountain CS with nearly 700 h.p that gets between 93 & 94 with a 36 Pitch 4 blade. Currently I run a 34 Pitch at 90. Not as fast but I like a little slip in the equation so I don't explode the drive. The boat also has much better manners with the 34. Good Luck with the TUFF!

I'm just wondering, what is the fastest single engine Vee speed. Is it 123?

Allison XR2001, Mercury Drag, 129mph in the Kilo. One way 131.
I have seen 134 on the lake..........

151.5 for the tunnel single engine, mod-vp
160ish for true tunnel.

1100hp--- 137mph, I know a few driver that WOULD try!.

I have had a hard time finding the answer to this same question, as I too like to run my 28 fast. I think there is a class in the APBA called 26'-31' stern driven single engine vees,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, to run the kilo(I think). Of course there are many small boats and outboards that have run huge numbers, but to compare apples to apples, As far as I know, there are only a small few single engine I/O stern driven boats 26'+ running well into the triple digits. I have heard a lot of stories about some real fast ones,,,,,,,,,,,We ran 122.0 mph a few weeks ago with a Howard 28 and a big blower motor.
That is a whole different story though,,,,,and off topic. To keep on track, I would really like to find out if there has even been a record set with a boat like this(28' vee/stern driven I/O)? I can guarantee you this,,,,,,,,there are no 28' vees out there running 95 mph with a 525!!!!!!!
