Jet Set is close to 200mph. I have been in the boat at 180 and he has seen in the 190's. It is a 40' skater and he is building a 46' Skater that has been a couple years in the works and will be the fastest pleasure boat ever built based on the hardware and calculations. The current boat has the outboard motor for docking as stated and also because the way the turbines and crash boxes are set up maneuvering around the lagoons where he keeps it would be next to impossible.

thanks, yea, i knew about the outboard for docking. also, figured it was up there along with My Way based on numbers and rpms and ratios they told me when talking with them for awhile at the 1000 islands poker run.

also i read somewhere that Extreme Exhibit was way up there, my way said they had never seen him run extremely fast, but he was next to them doing 165.

the 32 is impressive with those speeds.
