what she's not saying is that both of us were sitting about 2 inches higher in our seats after a few seconds at that speed in that boat.....

To answer your original question - around 80 so far. See post under "Who's ready for the season yet?"

Went 136 in a Skater, everything was kool until it started to dance around 130 or so my but cheeks clinched sooo hard I wish I'd had a piece of coal up my but, I'd be rich right now.

I've been 98 on my friends 31 Larry Smith Scarab,
and I was behind the wheel of another friends 28-30? Redline Cat (Team Catastrophic) and we just about it 100 when it thru a blade off of one of the props. Man that blade went thru the cavitionplate like it was butter !
And 80 in my own boat, but the thing is with all of these it still wasn't "fast enough" ! I would like to go 150 on the water someday. Anyone want to give me a ride ???:cool:

71.8mph gps, 4 people, full tank, 94 Sunsation aggressor with stock 502 and Mirage 25 pitch. Had the Hydrostream about 80mph, much more of a thrill in the little boat. Drove the old man's Sanger flat bottom with a 426 hemi close to 90mph when I was 14, haven't matched it yet.
