Default Fastest Skater with equal power?

I see quite a few new Skater's with 1075s being built. Just curious what is the fastest? 32, 36, 368, 388, 40? How about acceleration?

I would assume the smaller / lighter boats (32's on your list) would be the fastest, assuming the water is calm enough and all other things being equal.

not true...there are some cases where the bigger boats are faster than the smaller boats with equal power

I am thinking the fastest hull with equal power is the 388.

And I remember hearing that a 38 is faster than a 36 with equal power..... I think this conversation came up when comparing the Amsoil (36) to the new Stihl (38) boat in the Super Cat class.

That is what I was thinking. My guess is the smaller cats might accelerate a tad quicker until the pack some air but after that the 388 is gone.

Then again you cannot forget about the 32", BAD, boat. Vinny and Jimmy have run some big numbers with this boat. But it may be the exception to the rule.

I would be shocked if a 38 would out run a 32 with all things being equal and the water conditions were well suited to the 32.
