Default How Fast?

What would be the top speed range of a 33' Fountain with 500 HP's? Not sure of the year.

Lee, I'm amazed!! Was that 86 MPH on a GPS?? Was the water level?? --- Sorry to sound skeptical, but that just sounds TOO good to be totally accurate. If that is right, then I need to know about lots of other things; like drive heights, transmissions, props, etc. --- Jer
