Default dragon

I'm confident you'll see 100 with the 525's. are the its bravo xr shorties holding up ok. have you thought about the superchargers yet. would boost it to 775hp. have you got done with your design of the half widshield open cockpit 3/4 bolster configoration there any other 39's that will push 100mph out there right now. with that speed 90% of people would be happy with that speed. good job. you need a few around the us

Default OK last test run

We tested again on thursday evening. The boat ran 98 MPH with approx 80 or 90 gallons of gas, and a srong side wind. In all consideration I think it will run 100 in proper conditions. This is what the future is coming to. Eating up all those 40 foot boats with big power and #6 drives.

Wow you sure through down the gauntlet for John ( the owner ?) I'm looking forward to seeing the boat run up here in the Erie chop & now that the boats been seriously dialed in can we expect to see it at any of the big water runs ? I'd ask John but apparently his agreement with CB precludes him from making those decisions this year.

BTW I'm very impressed with your results, but lets not get carried away, the real world ( and some obsolete 40' footers) await Run with, maybe....eating......hmm..
