Paint / theme is not my taste, but the performance is impressive. Didn't the 39TG go around 117mph with the same power?

i saw this bad ass boat at lake of the ozarks running , it was early in the morning , around the 4th of July
It woke up the entire lake for multiple days,,,,, but it was worth it ,,,,, and amazing boat to watch,,,,,,,,

I asked around,, and no body knew much about it,,,,

Some Dealer told me it is now in Miami, doing some driving
anyone know about this boat

I just found out that this boat is now at TNT marine, in Miami
I believe that John Tomlinson is doing some testing with the owner,,,
My buddie saw it there in there shop

What a performance for a V Bottom Fountain

142.7?
I am suprised with this 15% slip angle

PBoat Mag stated they used a 39 P prop

This does not add up
(6000RPM/1.35 Ratio)x 39, divided by 1056 is 164
so with a 15 Slip
that would be a speed of 139,,,
So the slip is not as high as 15 %, and actually closer to 12%
to get this speed out of this boat,,,,,,,Maybe someone did not program the correct pitch in the gauge??
