Any plans to run the boat with race gas and break the 185mph with 93oct speed?

Seems like 200mph is right at your grasp with only a few things needed.

Joe, I realize this thread is about MTI vs Skater and agree about the lanyards.... BUT, lets be honest... Do you ALWAYS wear life jackets when you take your Skater for a blast???? Yea, I agree, its the right thing to do but from a practical stand point you and I know that it just does not happen.... By the way.... A 36 With 1075's.... That must be a smoken combination.... How fast have you seen?????

in all seriousness, i do (in the skater). in the cig, not so much... only when pr'unning, running hard or in big water. in my cc... only when running offshore. you just never know when someone's hand is going to get sweaty etc.., slip, and poof.... they're overboard at 70 MPH. lifelines if it's rough... inflatables any other time offshore.

it does run well. 163 is a real number. it has more, and you certainly wouldn't notice losing a bit of accelleration, running a larger prop. i just haven't felt the need to do it.

it's on rails now at 150-155mph, and that's fast enough for me (and my insurance program). i'm running a progressive pitch prop.... meaning, it's smaller pitch at the hub, and as the boat accellerates, and the prop comes more and more out of the water, running more and more on the tip/edge of the prop, the pitch increases.

the last 'tweak', we cut the diameter by 1/8 of an inch, and.. wow, what a difference.
