    Well I had a beismeyer true v hull 19', blown(C-16 and 24 psi,500 inch) with a 200 shot..got it to run 101 at parker steady as a rock..ran about 92 at altitude with less spray.

    Friend had a 18' kachina, 500,TR, spray, ran about 86 stable as well,put same motor in a 18' CP..bam 98.

    ur gunna have to keep the pump loaded, and that means dropping the shoe, and that gets risky if u have to shut off quick. I would for sure put a pressure guage on the pump intake side and keep her loaded but not to excess. Most all v-bottoms need a good amount of shoe, my beismier ran 1/4 inch under keel to keep hooked up on the bottle, the kachina 3/16 inch...IMHO

    how does it handle now?
    what speeds are you running now?

    when you say spray the shit outta it what do you mean?200500

    lots of things to consider when you say you are going to spray it.

    that is Don Jone's boat. He still has it. I believe he said he went 116 in it.

    Not to worry Mark, Gina's gonna whoop up on yer ass as soon as you whack the pedal anyway, may as well just jeave it alone! Save some money too!
    Or buy a Tunnel and she will be too stoked about the ride to worry about the speed!
