    Default how fast can you make a "station wagon"???

    Im working on selling my Tunnel to buy a 21' or so open bow jet (I have 4 kids) guess what Im wondering is it a waste of time to try and make something like that fast? Ill use my last boat as a example, it was a 95 Ultra LX 21, 454 and a jet... whats a realistic MPH with a built, but reliable pump gas motor? anyone have something like this? guess what Im trying to figure out is if I need 2 boats or if I can make a family truckster open bow "work" for me as a fast family boat/station wagon...

    It's my understanding that this 21' Daytona jet runs 115+. I wish I had a better picture of the boat:



    Somewhere around 588" if I remember correctly. I'm sure someone here knows more about it than I do. It even has iron heads on it.

    What you can see in the pics looks sweet! Id love a 21' Daytona... still could be a possibility, but more than likely it will be something like my last Ultra (in the pic above)

    Well everything I own with wheels has the bottle on it, so Ill likely go that route on the water... Stroked big block Mopars on Oxide are my weapons of choice... my hang up right now is do I wanna try and go fast in a family barge, or leave a family barge stock, and have a "ME" boat... I cant be the only guy with this hang up!!!

    I have my 562 powered TX20 and now I'm going to buy "the family put put" that way I can haul the hot rod to the lake and leave the put put in storage up there...

    for a frame of reference. stock 502, 9.1:1 compression, Dart Pro One Aluminum heads, mild .580 lift, 240 @ 50 cam, decent exhaust, MSD
