When he had it 2 years ago it had 550's in it. My old Checkmate ran 78 - 80 GPS speed and he passed me at a good clip one day. i'd say he was close to 85mph. Now with another 175hp per doggie, he may be close to the century mark

He only had it out twice so far for maybe a total of 3 hours. So he hasn't gone over 3500 rpms yet until he gets the feel of the boat (remember, he hasn't driven the boat in 2+ years!!) I'm glad he is being safe and "respecting" the beast rather than going out there and hurting himself. I'll let you know the speeds in a couple weeks. He still needs to prop the boat right.

Oh, and at 3500 rpms, he passed me like i had an anchor out. ( i was running 67mph. )
