Default How Fast? 2003 Baja 33 Outlaw w/496HO's

SO....any ideas on how fast a 33' Baja Outlaw with 496HO's is? For lack of details we'll say 1/2 load of fuel and 2 adults with zero wind and 75 degrees at 500' above sea level (give or take). Not sure on prop size/pitch but take a look at the speedo in this picture....is it possible or is the speedo not even close?

Give me your closest estimates

so in 20 minutes since I posted this thread the speed has increased by 5 MPH. At that rate we'll hit 100MPH in a little more than an hour and 15 minutes.

The purpose for this thread is to prove to my friend that his boat is not as fast as he thinks it is. He says it will go 81 or 82 and I said "NO WAY". Not even going down current with a 30MPH wind behind you!

Oh yeah...FYI, I don't have a Baja

Gary, how fast was your Cafe with the same power?? The cafe weighs just a bit more than the Baja so I'd say 68-69 MPH.
