Default my new used h2x

I am about to buy a used 2002 h2x boss and was curious how pleased will I be with this boat, and what issues might I have. Waiting on weather to break for I can test drive her first though.

How pleased you are going to be will depend mostly on your own expectations.

It will have to have upgrades done to it for it to run 80+ MPH. A friend had one with a 454 MAG in it. I believe it ran just over 70 MPH

Guy actually said he hit right at 70 by himself with half tank of beverage in it. Stock 496 mag with a 23 mirage 3 blade. First time baja owner hope I am satisfied! Garage kept well maintained boat.

Satisfied is fleeting , our boats are NEVER fast enough .

It isn't going to run 80 or even 70 with a 496 mag and a 23p prop..... to me it sounds a bit under propped. My Velocity 260 with 496 mag (and a PCM tune) ran best of 74 on an empty tank and a 26p labbed prop.. The Velocity is a much more efficient hull.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]538051[/ATTACH]I had a 1999 H2X with a stock 454 mag mpi, 23p mirage+would give me 68 mph @ 5000 rpm. Loved the boat, shouldn't have sold it.
