We hit 85mph in Jeff's 22ft Stinger... What's the top speed of your boat?

And I was testing the thickness of the skin on your arm with my fingernails! ;) :laugh:

Gambrinus: Yeah, but I bet you were an impressive sight at 83 in a 42! :cool:

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

NOT FAST ENOUGH! But like I said in another post, I'm really going for a bigger boat with alot more speed, the number doesn't mean anything to me, as long as it's fast!

In my boat Last year on N2O we hit 86, but started to chine walk I'll know more with new props later on.

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.
