What do you think about hitting the 100mph mark?

thats a nice place to be -I got there before on nitrous.
100hp plate on the 406.

Ive only got 6% slip. Pretty efficient hull.

Was it scary in that small boat going that fast.
I don't 100% understand the prop slip thing.
Basically like a 6% traction loss yes?
can you get props with no slip?
What prop were you running on that boat?

Also where do you find is the best place to buy boat parts from?

The Sebring was not scary, its a solid handler at all speeds and feels planted. It is lite in the front but not like an STV or small outboard tunnell hull/cat I could have kited it by overtrimming.

Your propellers thrust isnt 100% 1-1 the hull and the prop and many factors contribute to "slippage" a transaction loss is a good way to describe it.

You will always have some slip- more blades and bigger diameters help this, but some slip is beneficial to acceleration and drive lifespan.

I was running a hydromotive 4 blade 27 6300RPM.

Depends on the parts. If Im having them put in for me I always get a square deal from Lavey.

On my own I use CP, Teague, Rex, and Imco, Dana- depends on the part.

I gunna open up the bottom end on my stock 350 mag just to check the bearings out and everything. I got a set of roller tipped rockers around here somewhere I was thinking of throwing on for the hell of it. I was also thinking maybe take the heads apart and do alittle porting mainly just remove casting defects. What do you think?
