I had a friend with one years ago. Fast boat, but not very good in the rough. BTW don't tie your girlfriends ankles to the arch and go running around. They have a tendancy to fall off. (True Story)

i was an IMP dealer for 8 years and worked with the company with some of their r&d on the 31.a 1994 boat is a good one,they had made some needed improvements by then and the boats very good.they are excellant in rough water if driven properly.it should run an honset 68 mph with 454 mags.i had one at the miami boat show in 1995.i think it ran 67 with 7.4's when we did the test with HOT BOAT magizine.the cuddy is large,but the enclosed head is best used for storage.i had a 1990 31 that lost it's arch one day running in some 5 footers.i doubt if that 94 model has an arch,they were pretty outdated by then.

I have a 1993 IMP 310. I run very hard in rough water and the boat performs wonderfully. As far as speed my gps reads 68 on smooth water and with a 2 foot chop it will hit 70. This boat holds up very well and with some stern jacks will add quite a bit of speed. Also Procharger out of kansas will ass alot of speed for a reasonable cost.
