wait a minute that 83 was with a 26p prop 2yrs ago. I have had 3 surgeries then and I am waiting for the doc and insurance co to work out a price on the next one but looks like I will pay the differnts between then. by aug my boat should be together and will be prop testing with a 30p labbed prop rpms Iam shooting for are between 5400 to 5600 6000 is good for a b1 drive. so with the pitch change should have higher speeds mine was still climbing at 6000 but ran out of bay. so my top end should be a lil higher. SO WE CAME FROM BEATING THE BIG BOATS AT THE POKERRUN AND 100MPH SPEEDS TO LOOKING FOR A SMALL BOAT YOUR SIZE THAT YOU CAN RACE AT 85 MPH. BECAUSE YOUR TOP END IS NOW 85

Anything short of 100.01 will be a failure, you know it, I know it, and every boating board will soon know it.

For over a year now you have been claiming you can run "tripple" digits on pump gas.
You usually flamed out long before anybody could get something set up, and you disappeared back into your shop. The difference this time is you didn't know when to cut loose. You caught the interest of some big fish this time, and they are circling.
You posted it, you got called on it, no prove it....

100.01 MPH
Noooo the experts and the big fish have spoken I dont want to go against them sunday weather permtting I will do my best to try to sqeak out a 85 mph pass. Then we will go from there. Hect 85 is faster then most of these stock 38 to 42 footers running around

no back peddling Ive been insulted harrsed threatened, So called arm chair quaterbacks say they reviewed the tape its only going 60 blah blah blah. Hey if all you experts say it cant be done then I guess it cant, blame all your buddys for this one. I will put a small prop on and run a 85 mph pass then everybody can start crying about how its not 100 BUT what about all the BS that it cant even go 80 see you guys shoot your self in the foot
