    Default GPS my boat with a real GPS

    Well after all the hard work I've spent on this dang motor and it giving me fits all winter long it finally paid off. I bought a new Garmen GPSMAP 78 series GPS, it floats and is waterproof (pretty cool little GPS, and has a quick "refresh rate" which is what I cared about the most.

    Well on motor it did 98.6 MPH @6050 RPM, not bad, I figured if it did that on motor then I was hoping for another 10mph with a 250hp shot.

    On the NOS it did 112mph @6700 RPM Let's just say I was more then happy with that #

    That was with full gas tanks and a NOS bottle that weighed 20lbs and a conserve hardware setup, so I believe she has a little bit more in her.
    That is the fastest this boat has ever gone in its 20 year life.
    Congrats to me! LOL..
