    195 sport 2006 5.0L Mpi V8 on glassy day and probably wind behind me i hit 59 MPH GPS.

    Other days without effort i am always hitting 56 MPH GPS.

    I also notice my speedo is only 3-4 MPH off my GPS which is nice to know so I dont always need my GPS out. I do think I will get a GPS speedo installed though

    I had to let the horses run on this stunning day...I hit 67 mph with my 502 Mag and its 415hp and it felt like she had a little more left in her. Wow! She sounded great and floated across the lake. What a feeling.

    These were the conditions today....

    Old thread, but we topped out a 38.7 mph on GPS, full fuel, water and 4 people on board. Don't want to know the fuel burn. Cruise speed 28-29 mph at 1800-1850 rpm, much less fuel.

    Taking advantage of yesterdays coastal glassy conditions I decided to go for a fang and reached a new top speed (31.5 knots/36.25 mph) - engine(s) were bouncing off the limiter during parts of the run.

    Hadn't driven the boat for about 6 weeks so bottom might have been a little hairy
    No tabs
    1/3 fuel
    1/2 blackwater tank
    Full freshwater tank
    Inflatable on bow, outboard on board etc
    Fridges full
    Just me on board
    Approx 10 metres of water
