My best was 74 mph at 5000 rpm with Bravo 1 26P props so far. 3 blade 27P Mirage Plus may net a few more , but I like the hook up and acceleration with the present setup. The boat is pretty heavy for its small 25'7" size around 6500 lbs + added gear . It ran 85 at 3/4 throttle in the past with twin stroker 383's with superchargers .


Chine walked quite bit , but K-planes and Marine Machine external hydraulics were added later . I've also changed my props rotaion inwards and the boat runs pretty steady as you can see in the second video .
Haven't seen a Tantrum in person yet , but heard good comments about them running great in rough water.
What size is your boat and what power ?

Where did you get the SS screens? Did they come with the scoops? I must say the scoops and paint job look great.
