No doubt Fountain's have speed, and that's cool you can get there with that kinda of bank. but you threw it out there, now we have to look for a 24' to challenge you because your boat isn't a true 27?

rob, +1 for bandit performance, my engine shop used some great parts and knowledge. how much tq from your 600" ?

Where is Smitty when you need him. Here is the crane spec sheet on your cam.

700HP you say. Hmmmm. Really curious to see those dyno sheets. Be sure to include all of the dyno data. Fuel and air numbers count too.

No criticisms or nonsense. Just some straight honest questions. Afterall, your the one touting the 700 number.

still looking for some friendly competition, no nonsense guys. i plan to b running at least 85 with a goal of 90 and greater stability at speed when compared to last yr. please, no crap about someone you kno with a 40' cat that runs 150 in 5' swells. be serious guys.

my best last yr was 81 with 26" mach and 85 with 28" b1. 3ppl, 3/4 tank and not turning enough rpms with both props. anyone with a 26" b1 give me a shout if interested in selling it or a trade. thanks guys.

If you're throwing water conditions out the window...

and i can only assume that they will have a hamburger, straight off the grill, waiting on you at the finish line.

See, that is the reason I dont challenge anyone anymore. 100mph toons. How bad would you feel sittiing in a twin 525 or 600 boat and get spanked by one.

My '94 27 would top out at 83 running a 27" hydo. Motor was a HP465 with a B&M 250 bolted on top. Only other internal mod was a Crane 741 cam. Merc/Gil with silent choice. Rev was touching around 5800. Motor was dynoed just over 600. Been some 10 yrs ago.

my dyno sheet is on page 4. i will be trying a 1 inch spacer in the drive in the spring. mabye i should b faster idk? i have a bravo x upper -1 imco sc lower. i think i was held back by the props. it did run 85 with a 28" bravo around 5700 making peak hp at 6300. i feel with some fine tuning it should run high 80's to 90. lets keep torque in consderation too when talking about hp. also its not a stepped hull.

+1 for a pontoon boat that can run 100. thats just nuts!
