Thanks guys- Guess maybe I will save up and get something else in a few years if the need for speed outweighs the money! It's decent for now anyway.

I just learned to enjoy 60 MPH and a cruise of 45-50 MPH and call it a day for now.

Has anyone tried with a Bravo XR or similar high X-dimension drive?

Was figuring here (Im looking for a 26 Spyder and took one for a test spin this week *did Impress me Again -this boat is one of three that I know or my friends have owned) that with a bow lifting 4 or 5 blade plus enough horsepower (Im thinking of charged 350 mags) like 400 a piece should improve these boats speed ....also think 280 Kplanelike trim planes and you could actually run a speed with this relatively short boat...
Yes I know Im hooked on a 38Kv but right now cant even think of one....its enough I at least can be in my friends one once inawhile..so whadda you think?

I at least dont even think of stepped hulls....here in Finland boat manufacturers and Navy has experimented more than enough with them...The never run smooth enough in the Baltic...(remember its a shallow "lake" with devastatingly hard chop )
