Default How fast is your 496 Mag HO boat?

All the talk of fastest hull etc got me wondering. Throw enough HP and $$ at a cinderblock and you can make it fast. I think the true measure of how fast a hull is would be to compare speeds with equal power. I know there are lots of variables beside just the engines, but I am just curious about the best speeds seen with black power.

I'll start with the low side of things. My 38' resin bucket has had a best of 69.2gps with 1/2 tanks and light on gear, 2-3'chop, maybe 65 degrees out.
