76-78 is going to get quite boring

Make sure you step through every option/choice that might be on the boat and trailer with your bank. I did that with my credit union--we read through their whole list to make sure--and it made a considerable difference in the loan value.

I know that Pantera. It's a nice clean boat with good power and very well taken care of.

The motor makes 651hp with dry headers @ 35degs advance. We detuned the motor to 32 degs, smaller jetting, and added gill exhaust. It's not making anywhere near that sitting on the boat and it still redlines my 26p labbed bravo. Every hull is different and even with the same Hp some boats wont run the same speed. However, I see no reason why it won't run 76-78 with proper setup.

I wouldn't bother calling than, lol. But then again, you haven't called the last couple days anyways. We're expecting 92-93mph with 650hp-- for what it's worth.

Yeah, the two foot snow fall had me out all day clearing drives. I had my two tractors and walk behind working solid. Took me 6 hours to dig out my driveway and 4 vehicles , then helping neighbors and over to my moms. Winter sucks , I want to move south to boating weather year round. I have a 3 wide 3 deep driveway with a 6'drift all the way across. 4 cars covered like the last one in the pic. The only thing I could see at 6am was my truck cap. I was dead tired and on the couch at 6pm. No talking for me . The one is a pic of lake Michigan, look real hard you can see a jet skier lol.
