Doesn't the prop driven speed record, (~220 MPH) belong to Dave V. and the Miss Bud Hydroplane? I believe it was in Powerjoke magazines last year.

I believe any speed record - any REAL speed record - needs to be done over a measured mile, so the speed needs to be sustained. Drag boats are cool, but the short speed bursts don't set world records.

The Speed Record for a propeller driven craft is still 225, owned by the Miss Budwieser Hydroplane. That's the mark that Bud Select, Gieco and Callan have been looking at.
