107 really hmm... i would love to talk

So what I discovered was by accident and I only figured it out because of a geographic situation I was put in during a poker run I was in . I had just freshened up the Dart and had been pulling 101mph blast all day with 2 in the boat and moderate fuel . So we were on our way back coming outta the main river into the cut and the route I had taken basically was a mile long turn . Me being the smarta$s I am I decided to let about 7 boats enter before me just so I could fly past them . So with the boat leaned to the starboard side of the keel and turning 6K the boat just kept accelerating . I'm looking at the speedo the chart plotter and my friend and were both smiling from 104mph amazement . And it felt super comfortable , wasn't loose , and no walk . After that day I started playing with the tabs and found that even while cruising you could drop a tab and get the boat off its keel and gain speed . So even in a little chop while running straight the hull is not aerating . Its stuck to the surface just like a non stepped boat . So after I figured this out I would do some runs at the end of the day after I dropped the wife and kid off at the dock and day after day 107mph on both GPS's and two times I seen 110 on the Lavorsi Monster but the garmin didn't verify it .
Every run I've done I've had junk in the cabin i.e. tools , toys , chairs . If I really wanted to set the high number I need to clear everything out , run on fumes , and take the 380 tabs off and install the 280's but to tell you the truth whats the point ? Theres no money reward , theres no boats around my area that can run with me now and we have lost or almost lost to many performance boaters in the last couple years already . I don't wanna be added to the list of fallen for a few MPH's ....Take it for what it is

Now that is one thing mine has never done but I do turn a left prop . I can be by myself or have others in the boat and it always rode straight with no lean . Ive always joked about just taking the tabs off because their not needed . I'll bet I go most of the season without ever touching them . Now one time I got caught in some weather 60mph sustained and guest of 100 and if it weren't for my tabs I would have rolled over . I had one tab all the way down just to stay straight . BTW one of the most awesome boating experiences I ever had !
