Well 99 and half of the 2000 boats don't have steps. I have seen a 99 with 500's run close to 80, and some others barely break 70.

Late 2000, 01, and 02 boats will be stepped. 500's will get you 80-82. 525's will run 84-86. I have NEVER seen any of these 525 boats get to 90 or even close like some have suggested. (besides the F-2 layups).

You'll have to buy a 2002 or newer to get the ITS option (extension box). They weigh 9300 lbs.

LS JR.

I have witnessed a 04 TopGun with 525,s hit 90 on GPS.Special Lip-ship edition with no extended cabin and lighter layup.Neil will verify.

The 04 I Had From National Ran 90 On Gps. I Left It On There Its At Lake Cumberland Marine And Tony Told Me It Was Still On It.i Can Only Hope The 05 Will Perform The Same Way.

Alright then speed experts. What do you think my non stepped 2000 Tiger will run with a pair of 750's . It has an extended cover girl cabin and ran 70 with 540's
