Default Ol On Tv Tonight

they where saying that the 46 will run 100 mph in 8 to 10 footer's comfortibly . i just dont see that to be a true statment .
8 to 10 footer's would be some big water to run 100 mph in, if you where not in a race boat and even then that would be fast .
has anyone ben in a 46 runing a 100 mph in that type of water ?

thank's
mike

I've seen Mike Fiore personally run a 46 in some snotty 6-8+ Lake Michigan water, with huge 10-12 foot holes at times. We were running 40-45mph max when it was rough. He was maybe 10-15mph faster than the rest of the pack.

I think it all depends on the definition of "comfortably"; and everyone has their own yardstick. Mine is about as accurate as my hearing; just ask my girlfriend.

i know the boat will run that speed , but you will need some wing's becuase you will be flying most of the time . and im sure you would only want 2 peep's in the boat , one driving and one in the next bolster, and know one in the back otherwise they will be swimming

I agree...We have run poker runs with people in the boat at those speeds and it takes alot of work... But true big V bottoms can eat some pretty big water
