Most of our ski race boats here in Aus are capable of 140+mph. None longer than 21'. All set up for reliability so Kilo distance is not a problem.

I believe those "K Boats" run in the 140's as well. Basically nothing more than a 1970's California style shallow V hull with big power. They race them on an oval course like in Parker AZ and such.

I would bet the fastest single v would be a small "river" boat that would be a shallow V and under 20 ft.

For an offshore style boat that could go in something more than a ripple, I bet the Howard will be the fastest, but not documented.

What happened to the Superboat Y2K that was being built with a turbine?

Well one thing is for sure.....

It looks like if a sanctioned kilo run was to be held for the fastest single vee bottom, gas ,prop boat.....there should be a large entree list....just in 10 hours we have heard of over 6+ boats that would run over 120+.....

I'm suprised that know one had sanctioned such an event...
It sounds like it would not be a Fountain event where it would be just Reggie...
It sound like there would be a number of manufactures boats that would represent....

I found a old post of JC saying one of the orange 30 Activators with his 1000 HP did 117 mph...
