Deleted post said he had the computers re-programed to set the limiters @ 5800. But he calls the motors "stock."

NOT!

Probably also increased the boost, among other "tricks."

But who really knows?

Welcome to Reggieville.

Begining of video says "powered by 2 Mercury 700 horse-power blower motors."

The deleted message from "Roger", he states that the motors are "stock," but with higher rev-limiters.

Absolutely no hate: just tired of the never-ending BS coming out of North Carolina.

The video is great.

The speed is fantastic.

It would be even more interesting if we could learn what it really took to get that speed. Others with Merc 700's might be very interested.

Like T2x, I too am allergic to Bull-$hit.

The boat is running a lot more like a 42 with 850's. Thats gotta be one of the fastest 38's out there. They show a close up of the pullies....any experts out there notice if they're stock or changed?

OK, here's part of the spill. Back in May of last year I took the boat back to Fountain. When new the boat ran 114.8 but on my trip back it only ran 110ish. Brian checked it out and it had developed a hook in the bottom. The guys worked it out and did a few tricks on the bottom and when I ran it at the Jammin on the James the tell-tell was at 117.8. I saw 114.00 with two people on the boat and 240 gallons of fuel all against the rev limiter. I will say that the limiters are now set at 5800. So 117.00 against the limiters and now 5800, you do the math. No wrench has been turned on the engines.
