I wouldn't expect a nortech to obtain the same speed with the same power as a skater. skater is built soley for flat out speed. no frills...

they are a hull with seats and motors.

Thats why I was surprised with the top speed of the 38' test boat with 1200s.

Ask this same question with Mercuy power that should be same in each boat. Say a 1075 package. No way the Nortech will hang with the Skater. Only other boat that will beat the Skater is a MTI
