This is in no way a negative towards either engine or manufacture. They both have their place, and without options performance boating would be boring.

I would love to see a list of boats worth comparing and their performance numbers! Thanks!
Have NT & the owner of hull #1 477 send that up 2 Char 4 a run out in Lake MI!!!!!

Great read too!

One thing I always hear about the V10's is fuel savings. Not once in that test did the V10 break 1.0 mpg stat. The 600sci was getting 1.6 mph at 3000 rpm.....weird

I know my judgment about the Viper V-10 is clouded as well (have one), but in a boat...dear god...it sounds completely evil. I vastly prefer the sound.
