Default 91.1 GPS, 35 Fountain 525's, anyone faster ?

I have a stock 2004 35 fountain lighting w/ 525's, GPS 91.1.
The boat can get to and maintain 90 regardless of fuel and crew. I hit the rev-limit @ about 91..not solid ..just on and off.
Anyone running faster with stock ?

the new 35 fountains will hit 100mph with 525's. the 399 skater, 39 velocity, 41 outerlimits, all will run mid 90's-100mph with that power

..Reggie said it did 105 but in an older issue of PB mag I read this weekend 101.4 is what they achieved.

Our Gladiator ran a best of 92.9 on gps with stock 525's. Would always run 90+. I would also consider this hull not that efficient. There's quite a few boats out there that will run better with 525's.

found the article..May of 08 PB mag..101.1 but it was set up for top speed and took 20 sec. to hit 50 mph..that's terrible and even the mag said it would better suited with a diff. set up. Also it had diffusers and Hering props.
