I did see the Bad Boy boat run in New York,very fast I will give you that but I dont know how well it will turn on really tight turns on a tight race course with that much of the back end of the BOTTOM missing,the front is like a true offshore boat and the back is cut down with steps so far that I have seen bass boats with more free board,but I do have to say that the boat is fast.I do believe that you are still going to find that pound for pound with 500 hps 37 to 39 ft the Velocity will win hands down and be a very safe ride while doing it with no spin outs and throwing people out of the boat.I also agree with TX2 that if want to go really fast buy a Skater after all thats what he did.

My Scarab didn't have any steps it was a 96 before the AVS hull. And the free board was very high.

My 388 isn't stock so I can't compare my boat to others. It supposedly ran 87mph with stock HP500's.

105 mph, I have the other boat that apba made the px-v class in St. Pete. I had 1300's in a 34 Phantom. A short in the MSD box on the starboard motor made for a ****ty day for us. But I can tell you 128mph in a 34 footer is white knuckle ride. I never knew what prop walk was before. And I have done the Sarasota poker run before with 700's in it and never saw any Velocities up front. And I was the 3rd V-bottom to the Vinoy. It was all fast cats and an, Ol and the yellow Poker run Fountain up in front of us all day. Maybe we were already tied up at Gators when this Velocity was kicking every body elses ass that day.

Are you guys saying a 38' Fountain is the same size boat as my 388 Slingshot? They both have swim platforms. I'm not sure I follow you.

If I glued a yard stick coated with fiberglass to the bow of my boat, would that make it 41'?????

Hey Jeff,
This thread was for stock power,not big motors.I am sure that your 34 Phantom with twin 1300 hps is a white knuckle ride and that not many other boats will get by you.
