We have several 28 Jokers that run well over 100 mph.

Did anyone see this at the Miami Boat Show? When I asked what it ran they said they had not run it yet and were not going to sell it with that motor in it!

Man I'm glad I started this thread........ Great feedback and learned of alot about boats I didn't even know existed.......

OK, gonna throw in more Qualifications as in a usable everyday boat with company.....(1) Can't be gutted and set up for racing only. (2) Has to have stand up bolsters and a rear bench seat for three. (3) Has to have a cuddy that you don't have to crawl into and at least the room of a 25 Outlaw cuddy(sleeps 2 in v-berth and a couple of loveseats too.

Now lets see the feedback.........

Just turn the power up in your outlaw, my Baja 272 has run right at a hundred, probably has more if I didn't value life, Smitty

Anyone? know of a faster single..
Well, it's the fastest one I've ever been in and ever heard of. Without exaggeration, I still get goose bumps and feel a little sick when I think about my ride with Bob Teague for a Powerboat magazine test in that boat.

I was so scared at the time that I actually closed my eyes at one point in the run.

And the boat had more in it—we ran out of straight river before we the engine ran out of rpm. We both pretended to be disappointed when the drive broke before we could make our next run. Whew—I mean, dang ,those pesky drives.

So that particular 25' Daytona was the fastest recreational single-engine boat I'm aware of. However, there are faster (much) single-engine drag boats.

This brings up a good point. Maybe the discussion should be limited to boats that will run at least a 50-hour season without the replacement of major components...

She has more in her Smitty. I have another 85HP in her at 5.5lbs of boost and guessing she will be right at 900HP at 8.5lbs of boost..... Have right at 50hrs on engine. Just glad I haven't broken anything for once this year...... How much power you have in the 272 again? 1000 plus right and you took off ur extension box for it scrubbed off MPH too?
