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 :)devil

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!

back in '04 it ran 89 on the GPS , and I have run the dogshit out of it ever since..

Well let's just say for a POS engine she does pretty good :)grn but that ones coming out, and BIGGER and BETTER going in..

I'd have to see that! (3D club) not saying it won't Bob,

PITA ??

I just wanna make sure that it can handle 750hp and a 250 shot :)hand

This old Avenger ad showing where one set a record at 130+ back in the 70's.... Don't know any detailed info on the boat or if its actually the fastest v-hull, but 139 is pretty fast.... :p
