You're wrong.

The last Factory 3 Skater 32 (new style) I had the privelege of riding in...ran over 115 with 500 HP's. As a matter of fact the 36 Skater can break 110 with 500 HP's. Skater has a new I/O-O/B 30....... which, I'm guessing, should break 110 with 496 motors

Flash backward......23 years...... Original stern drive Shadow Cat "Luv IT" (much bigger than today's Eliminator)...built heavy for BIG Seas with old style laminate schedules and coring...... twin single carb 400 hp......# 3 drives......old style props........... 105 mph.

I repeat..... running over 100 with twin 400+hp stern drives in a 30 foot cat...is no big deal.

and yes...subtract at least 10 mph for West Coast cats......until they copy something other than another West Coast cat.

I know of a heavy 36 Skater with HP500s and #6 drives that ran well over 100 mph. The actual number is a secret. There was also Kurtis's 36, Ryan knows the boat, again with #6s and 500s that ran even faster.
