The new 30 Outlaws should touch 80 with that power, I can't see the 33 doing it!

Towed behind the truck maybe, GPS on.

Most of the 33's with HO's run between 74-76 on GPS. As long as they have labbed props.

Judging from my AT, I think it might be possible; very light load and right water for the boat.

I think that is the nicest thing I have ever said about a Baja.

I've had a 36, 38, and 40 baja, had 496ho's in the 36 it ran 70. rode in a 33 it ran 73, and the 30 will run 76-77 on gps with these motors. I've been in too many bajas, this is all they will do

I thought it was just common practice for
the sellers to add at least 5 mph to the top
speed of the boat, be it new or used.


I call it the "actual retail speed"

ONE WAY TO FIND OUT....LET IT RIP AND BRING THE GPS. TELL HIM FOR EVERY MPH UNDER 80 MPH HE HAS TO TAKE OFF $2500.00 THEN SEE WHAT HAPPENS...if it only does 70mph your $25,000 ahead of the game
