I have something planned for most of them.Although i will be wearing my helmet and life jacket on this one.
Just curious how fast would the bat boat fly with say 950+hp?

I have seen 75 mph (radar) with 385 prop hp, 86 mph (radar) with 530 crank hp, and 92 (calibrated speedo) with 600 crank hp in mine.
I have heard of 108 (GPS) with 730 crank hp, and 107 (radar) with 690 prop hp. Assuming a square root relationship between speed an hp, 950 crank hp should yield, oh, 122.06 mph. It would probably be better than that since a BatBoat is somewhat of an aerodynamic device, like a cat...

You've got the helmet and vest - YOU drive it.

C_SPRAY,

You lost me @ "square root"

Let me see if I get this correct...

More HP= more hang time off trawler wakes

I am gonna go out on a limb here.I want to set it straight I dont agree with docoke's replys[formally activatorsfly].But if i was held down to it i would have to back up that his boat does run what he claims[sorry pantera1].The only reason he cant post pics is that by being a jackass on this site,he is not allowed to post pics.

Oh yeah - Almost forgot about that little flight. That's the only time I've ever heard an engine have the time to come all the way back down to idle while still doing 80 mph. It did get awful quite for about three seconds there, didn't it? But Man!: What a n-i-c-e landing. Never lost a beat. Still hear about it from The Admiral, though...
