my 1st boat was a 21 scarab s/b 270hp mag with a 2in. shorter alpha drive{alpha ss, i think they called it} it ran 61-62mph. I used to race a 28 scarab w a 454mag {so he said} he would beat me a little {about 1 1/2 boat lenghts} after running about 1 mile down the river

yes....he may have beaten you on smooth water, but i've been in those 21 scarabs and they can feel a little squirly around 61.... maybe it's because you sit so close to the water in them. The 28 is a world of difference away from the 21 and I'm sure you walked away from him as soon as there were a few waves...
