Im gonna get some this week. Never thought about it, but it would make a good project boat for you. Im thinking he said it ran in the 60s maybe? I would have bought it if I didnt buy mine.

A guy at my marina has a 23 Raven with the same power setup and he is hitting around 50 maybe. I know my Baja smokes him and I am only hittin 58.5 GPS. So I would be leary about any 60 claims.

I could be wrong. I was just going on memory (which isnt what it used to be!) I would think the smaller boat would be lighter and faster though. Still, even if it only went 50+ it would still be fast in a 20' boat.

Definately a good speed. And it should be a little faster and lighter at a shorter speed. I am just suspect of peoples speed claims. Gotta love hand held GPS units.

21 pitch prop? I'll give it 53 @ 4800 rpm at the outside upper range. Prolly more like 4500 rpm and 48mph.
