23p props, 5000rpm, 1.5:1 drive and 10% slip is 65mph, so that's my guess at his actual speed.

Or perhaps he just added a 1 in front of the actual speed.

His claim is absolutely TRUE!








So long as you are heading on a Rocky Mountain 30 degree downslope, the trailer breaks free and emergency brakes don't engage.

You've got a 27' Fountain with 650hp, I'd tell him you wanna race... If he thinks he goes 147mph, he's gonna think you go like 180mph after you race.
