I heard it run 160 today, but that was when they dropped it outta the plane.

He didn't run this past weekend. Weather was not conducive. Hopefully this coming weekend. I will post when I get the numbers.

Not at all, just trying to be funny. Anything is possible, but seeing is believing and I'd like to be the one holding the GPS, I need a good fast ride.

Take it from me Charlie ran that speed......... I was there......... saw the GPS.... and know his boat runs with mine north of 120... with normal props. He put on some skinny kilo wheels, counter rotated his gear cases (prescription for disaster for the average joe) and went really quick.

There should be more to come.... and more boats heard from.

Bottom line....buy a Skater.

I've had one before, former kilo record holder, so I've been there already done that.

In the hands of mere mortals you are correct. Charlie is one of the FEW people that run their props turning IN all the time and can handle it well. As he is a very close friend, I wish he would spin 'em out for his own safety.

Someone please explain to me what the difference is spinning them in and why its so dangerous? I have a 28 also and spin them in, when I first bought the boats I put the props on backwords but didnt run the boat just changed the props back around. Spinning them in should create more bow lift which I know, and these boats dont really need that but if you trim the boat accordinally you really shouldnt have a problem??
