I don't think 105 is slow by any means. Heck my boat only does mid 70's on a good day. But for a boat with 2000hp I think it should be A LOT faster than 105mph

If 1000 hp turbines are limited to 75%, thats only 750hp, 105 sounds about right. I'm assuming the % gauge on the dash is a tattle tale. I know that is often done to give the engines longevity. If limited to 75% you could run WOT for thousands of hours. Not that I really know anything about turbines, just repeating what I've read.
