    that is fast for that boat with V drives......usually low 30's is the average top speed for V drives and around 40 with outdrives......

    are you running the stock props?

    No, previous owner took it back down from a 4 blade back to a 3 as it has plenty of power out of the hole.

    I see you have the 454 MAG engines which believe are high output....they push that boat down the water really well....looks like it is in good shape all around....

    They are, they are rated at 380 a side. I would love to say that they have been rock solid, but I am not because I do not want to jinx myself. :smt001 Bought the boat almost two years ago and it has been great. My wife and I have been having a blast with it.

    Simple cell organisms in the oceans from what I have read. Interesting, so no Dino's involved?

    Nice. Looks like you're really honking along there.

    Only time I've gotten over 40 was going downstream on the upper Niagara River. Didn't want to push it too long though. That first drop is a doozy.

    Not much better than a boat that is running wide open while well trimmed and running on smoother water.

    Nice video. Thanks.

    Nice! Nothing like "airing it out" on a nice smooth stretch of water.

    What size is your dancer? I have a 93 express 250 with a 7.4 bravo 1 and I get maybe 44 mph. Impressive!
