Default How Fast 2001 Sonic 42 500 Efi ?

I called this guy. He says 70's but not sure if high 70's or low 70's...

Anyone know the exact speed?

If that Rockit trailer is like the one I had under my 98 28 Sonic it is a Cheap POS.

In the Sonic section guys are saying 68-70. This boat was for sale here in Chicago area (Chain of Lakes) for 2 seasons. Ask them why it moved there. It just was moved in the last month.

As far as meeting your needs in your other post, it would be close in terms of cabin room, speed, etc. The center bed fill in becomes huge, and you can actually stand up to use the toilet. Plus the wife can walk around on the sides to help tie up.

that's what the owner said he bought it 1 month ago, lost his license, so the boat is for sale... anything wrong with this boat you think?

If you come to the Alex Bay Run I will show you my '98.

70ish is your number.

PM me if you want.

With those big drives and such a big boat, 68-70 mph is spot on. That Rocket trailer is a POS.
