my 410 did 80 with 540 bulldogs. I imagine speed is about the same with the 390 500hp maybe faster because of weight and surface area

That's a legit speed as I've seen 86.4 on mine in ideal conditions - salt water, 1' chop, 65 degrees no humidity, limited weight and fuel. They likely used a labbed bravo (~30") to plane off like that. You can get a little more top end using a Hydro but it's painful getting on plane - not enough blade area on the Q4. Velocity Tom may have some 390 props for sale.

I think the newer 39 with 565's ran 98-99? I would love to step up to a 39 if i had room to store it.
