    You might be on your way to making another one.

    I don't have a 100 mph boat so don't know shit from shinola, however thinking about this logically..........If you want to go 100 mph why not start out with a platform that will let you attain your goal, without breaking the bank and be a safe ride to boot. (well as safe as can be at 100 mph).

    I'm thinking tunnelhull, mod V, winger etc.

    Honestly.........if I wanted to go 100 mph (which I do incidentally) I would go with the tried and true. My old semi-v was a handful at 80+ mph.

    As an example. I have a hard on for the old Glastron Carlson CVX20, but I wouldn't want to try to make one run 100.

    Default Hondo t deck

    Like our old friend Tommy rip your going to need training wheels to run those speeds safe. Vees run out of boat at 90 or so theres a few rogers out there getting up there but unsafe and a handful to drive. My 2 cents

    If your goal is 100 then you should stick with a gullwing or a true tunnel, from what Ive read.

    A friend had one, once up to 80 the boat needed hull mod's to go any faster. He added to the strakes, got into the upper 80's, lots of time on set-up. He sold the boat, less motor before doing any further mod's.

    Brandon. Ive seen that Hondo run. You DONT want it!

    I think you'd be stoked on a Tunnel Hull if you want to have the option to cruise down river on the weekends. A gullwing is going to be a shiitty ride in the weekend chop.

    get a gullwing, much easier to meet your mph goals with the motor you suggested

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    as far as mpr goes it dont have to be a gull wing to go 100 place craft tunnel is the fastest hull to be tested

    I've got a 18' cp gullwing with an 800hp NA motor, runs 108mph. I also have a 19' placecraft with a blown alcohol motor runs 130mph (I'm guessing, never taken it to the drags). I like the gullwing better on the river..... I like the placecraft at 100mph+.

    question

    How does your 18' cp feel at 100?
    Is it any different then the 19' CP ?
