Thanks tcob. :) I saw 58mph almost full of fuel (270 gallons), I think I will pick up a few mph when the tanks get lower. guessing low 60's at the end of the day, but still just a guess.

These motors do not have quite the grunt that the verados have so I am sure the weight difference will have an impact on the top speed. Now I just have to find the time to burn some of the fuel off :D

The heck with those Verados! Get a set of 250xs Optis on there. You'll be faster and get better fuel economy than the Verados. :D

I hear ya, but my wallet does not have the same taste as my want list. LOL BTW, I saw a 21 liberator rigged with a new 300xs las week running just under 100 and still breaking it in. Daaaamn, my want list is getting farther and farther away from my wallet by the minute :D

Thanks S4Boat- That's what I'm looking at for my boat.

Tcob- That's a good analogy........it must have been inspired by a few Bud Lts!
My next boat will be a CC w/ dual 250XSs and a small cuddy in the front= PARTY BOAT!!!!!!
