137 for the statement. The 44 OL has been 144, on pump gas hard on the rev limiters. I know it will run 150 based on the props that were on it, the gear ratio we were running, & the fact that the limiters are set very conservitively. not to mention that we could put some boost to it and run good fuel, but that would take away from the fun part. We have over 60 hours on the blue boat of just plain pleasure boating. no need to go any faster.......for now.

we run it in the bay every weekend. i use the transient dock when i take it to work. (beats driving) we keep it in East Greenwich during the weekends and in the garage at the OL factory during the week. Getting ready to send it to FL in time for Biketober Fest

So why not bring it to the Shootout and see what you can do in a mile? The fastest pleasure V last year was a "42" Fountain w/turned up 700's at 114mph. The Statement was there but didn't compete.

Maybe, still working on some scheduling conflicts with a race in europe, but haven't ruled it out yet.
