I don't think he is talking about a race boat. There was an OSO member "Kook" that had an accident on the upper Chesapeake Bay, years ago. If I recall the Sunsation had a 572ci motor.

The accident he's referring to is here:

I ran across it a couple weeks ago and it really sticks in your mind.

Yea thats scary. I guess it canhappen in any size boat, but the aggressor does chine walk kinda bad unless water is perfect. Never had it over 74mph. Im sure with this engine it will do well over that.

Does your boat chine walk real bad? Why do the aggressors do that so bad? Mine does running 65mph if I run into side rollers.

Narrow beam. With the torque you always have to drag one tab. I ran mine for a few hundred hours in all water. Never felt scared but can see with big power how fast you can get in trouble fast...
