Default How Fast Do You Run Offshore...??

Eliminator has thier 43' Eagle. It's GPS'd around 105 with Merc 700's and 125+ with 1075's. How fast are you running out there with a similiar sized boat and power...??

What's practical for a long distance run...?? The Cummins Green Diesel runs solid around 75 all day long, with a huge fuel savings.

Just looking for some feedback/input.

That's good speed for a 30 year+ bottom design. I would like to see what it could do with Sea Tek 850s.
