Top speed for the 25' Rage was 75.6 mph at 5,000 rpm, not at all bad for a 3,700-pound boat powered by a 425-horsepower motor with a Bravo One X (new this year) drive with 1.5:1 reduction and a lab-finished Mercury 15 1/4" x 26" four-blade stainless-steel propeller. More impressive than that speed, however, was how stable the 25-footer felt at that speed.

"With an HP500EFI engine, this boat would probably go 85 mph, and it would handle it," said Bob Teague, our lead test driver.

Went up to the boat house for a listen but you guy must have been to far out .Felt like it must have been cold.But by the pictures it was worth it.

I think that picking up 9.4 mph with an extra 45 HP is unrealistic!!!! WTF does Powerboat Mag think we are, a bunch of NitWits!!!!!

GLH,

I was at Champlain yesterday on the NY side by Keesville (if that is how you spell it) and heard some nice power running along the Vermont side. I could not see them, but I figured it was you. The lake was like glass. I am glad you had a great weekend with it. It looks great. I will be back up for the Fun run in July and look forward to seeing eveybody then.

Wonder if Mr Teague will be at the Heatwave? Along with the rest of us Nitwits?
