I believe they are expecting mid-170's...

that is a lot of boat. For scale- that is a 40' Skater rafted up to it in 3rd pic, post 17.

Goldrush is sweet. I love the colors and simple graphics. What kind is it. I can't see the lines that will identify it. Every shot is too close. Does anyone know top end? How much HP X4?

What Jass said. Talked to the owner after the run a bit.

180's + is the est. didn't get there yet but with a full load he was doing a comfortable 130's + at the Friday lunch run.
Based on the math I think she will do mid 180's.
That's about 100 more then I got.

I ran one of the older quad 50's with 1150's to 161 and ran out of room near card sound. The recall was at 165. I am sure this one has more in it. It is a great looking ride.
