Ok, I'll rephrase that.

If you want the fastest open cockpit V-bottom boat with stock engine, and if you don't want to pay more than around $100K (half of it to Mercury,) then there is no other choice than Kryptonite. And she runs on rails. And she's built extremely well. And Kirk is a joy to work with. And Kirk doesn't mind doing specials at all. And Randy, the reigning world champion of F1, just took delivery of his 2nd Kryptonite. And his old one, after winning three worlds and umpteen firsts in 5 years, doesn't have a single crack after Randy & Glenn beat the living daylight out of it. And I don't receive a discount for saying that, quite the contrary ...

By the way, if you want Kryptonite real fast: I know of at least 3 Kryptonites in my neighborhood that go above 100. Not quite stock engine anymore, but nothing outlandish either.

If there's interest, I'll do a writeup on the beasts.

Recently saw a 30'Phantom that ran 111 mph. It definitely was not a 500 hp, but I still think that is rolling. I have not seen a faster single v bottom to date. The engine was built by Total Marine and Performance in Slidell, La.

My friends 2002 27 Activator with 575 runs low 90's. With the HP500 they run low to mid 80's....very few boats in this size can produce those numbers.

If your only concern is speed....(not ride quality - especially on the LOTO)....you MUST drive/ride in a Warlock 29' World Class V....I had one which was too damn fast for it's own good - - NO JOKE - it rode/drove like my dad's bass boats!...with a single 468ci, Bravo 1, 4 blade bravo prop...ran 78 - 80 mph all day...but rough....I say all day...until I busted a hole in the keel pad/transome from too much air time and it sank!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
