You probably weren't an OSO member when the TRIPLE DIGITS threads were going on .....

The person can say all he wants but until you see it for yourself, you will never know.

We had a guy on here years ago saying his Sting Ray would do over 100.

So I showed up to verify and for one reason or another he refused to produce the number...

Might see it if he can run around 9500 rpm with 1.35 gears.

Even with blowers and nitrous and all the bells and whistles his little heart could dream of, 454's wont push a 37ft boat a legit 147mph
