Default Dose Anyone Know What The Speed Record For A Single Vee Bottom Is

Is there a single gas engine VEE bottom with a prop speed record....
I'm sure its in some little boat....
But with Reggies Vee bottom record, I have not heard of any single prop gas engine in a Vee bottom...
I know the F1 hydros run 140's with there OB...but I'm talking a vee hull...

Anyone know the numbers...

Thanks

I had heard that a Howard 28 Bullett with a GT Performance motor put up some big numbers over 100 mph, but not too many people bother with promoting single-engine V-bottom numbers. I'd like to see what the new OuterLimits 28 would do with a big motor.

I would think it would be in the 115 to 120's but I could not find it anywhere...
With all the hype with Reggies record...I would think there would be just as much in a single becuase more manufactures could attempt it and not cost 600k+ to build one...and you would not need the 1000+ hp to get there....
I would think in a avg 25 to 30 foot boat...700 to 800 hp would get you over 100 with no problem...

You should probably spend time looking through the APBA Speed Records.

The OB record on a tunnel hull is 176.???? set many years ago.

Allison still holds the single outboard V-bottom record @ 129. Was set back in the 80's. 2.4 Bridgeport on an Allison XR2002.

I'm sure it would get you into the 100's, but not into the record books.

My buddy's 20 Cigarette will run just over 100, with an 800+hp engine, so you can use that as a control number.
