Congrats on the new boat. I spent a lot of time on that boat. It will run the number. Be safe!

The boat will run 135 MPH making 1100 HP on pump gas with Herring props. If you put the 1350 HP pulley's on the blowers, be certain you run fresh race fuel and run some bigger props.

I hope you enjoy the boat and like Matt said, Be Safe.

If he decides he would like to make it "LOOK" as good as it "RUNS", then have him give me a call. I would be happy to discuss options with him.

I never ran the smaller pulley's, the 135 number was on pump gas.

I had the Herring props on it and I believe I was running 6000 - 6200 RPM's. Actually, the Herrings have the same diameter and pitch as the Mercury props now on the boat.
