Thanks for all your positive comments on our run. Although I feel I need to set the record straight from my perspective. The radar at LOTO is very accurate, where and when it reads your speed. Try to fight a ticket in court. This speed contest is to start at or below 40 MPH (radar verified) then go the distance of 1 mile and document the highest speed in that distance via a radar gun. We did 191 MPH at the spot the radar gun registered. No Doubt… But if you notice in the video I did not let off the throttles at the end of the 1 mile course. I stayed in them for a couple of seconds in the shut down area to make sure I got everything out of the run. My boat is still accelerating until I stop applying power. My GPS is recording the highest speed no matter the distance. So in 1 mile plus the distance I went until I pulled the throttles back I did 198 MPH via my GPS. I should not have put my GPS number in the video. It leads one to believe I am contesting the radar number. I am not… The contest is the fastest speed you can go in 1 mile not 1 ½ miles. If the course were 1 ½ miles we would have done 200 MPH but it is 1 mile. The shootout radar recordings are accurate. We did 191 MPH at the 1 mile mark, period. And what a ride it was… Chip

so what is cruising speed in a 198+ MPH boat?? pull it back to 140?

That is my dreamboat, (and probably half the people on here), looking forward to getting one of my own someday, thanks for sharing looks like an awesome ride, love that massive roostertail!
