New Math?

I know they are teaching this new math in school over the last few years but I"m kinda sure this guy flunked math. Or maybe he meant 147 mph divided by 2 (2 engines) = 73.5 mph! Geez, I can still divide!

Wow, I guess we're gettin desperate for thread topics?

Best Regards,

your 27 with 650hp should blow him away, with a step hull he might hit 78 to 80. if its a older non step 74 would be more like it.

In sales that is called "mere puffing" (slight exageration), but in this case that seller has puffed way too much laced weed, PCP, or whatever mind altering drug that could be ingested to make that claim, and the seller is definitely hallucinating with that claim. With the insults dispensed, as said before, that would run in the 60 mph to 65 mph range.
