Default What Speed?

Finishing up the rigging this week on a 1984, 32' Cougar Cat. The boat has been completely re-rigged... #5 drives, Twin custom Keith Eickert 900+ motors. Will be testing in Sanford early next week. Any thoughts on the speeds we will get? The boat originally had twin 420's and TRS's and did 80mph.

Hey Mike...Still have the Sunsation and still working on more speed
This is a friends boat in which Cruboss has rigged and I have helped him out along with doing all the Powder Coating. The boat is coming out incredible. Will definitely be an eye catcher and will hopefully maker it in Hot Boat Mag. Were trying to make it in the water saturday, but there is a few more things to complete, so hopefully early next week. I'll post pics that I have now and then post some from test day.
Are you going to the boat show? We are heading down Friday and coming back saturday night.

Burce,
So that's what you have been doing with your OSO time! I'm guessing, around 115-120 MPH.
Good luck and be careful.

The motors at just under 7lbs of boost made over 1100hp. Keith dropped it down to 6lbs. of boost made over 900HP.
My guess on speed is in the 130's
