That's not fast. This is fast.

No pics but my Stratos will get up in the mid 70s and a friend of mine has a Allison that will break 100. Not too bad for a bass boat.

yep, that looks fast

Ok so it's not my boat but holy sheeeet does that thing fly! Coolest way to watch the super boat is on the water for sure (on my not nearly as fast boat)

Define fast, please?

80+ mph on the water is a pretty damn good pace.

A little 8 foot PWC going 65 mph is fine on smooth water hit a wake or two, then it becomes much more interesting.

I do. She tops out at 53 mph. Sadly, shes got a busted motor.

I can get my center console up to 50 on a calm day.

you need to define some more things...

lake boat?
offshore boat?
etc

any idiot can buy an overpowered bass boat and get 65kts on a flat lake.
doing that offshore on bluewater requires about 10 times the money.

my brother has a zillion HP Donzi and it is hella fast, but at speed it also makes you realize that you are 0.25 seconds away from blunt force trauma death.

Now that is sweet. No doubt, offshore is the big league. And that's what I'm hoping some fellow boat owners share here.

But I still have massive respect for the hot rodded bass guys that can hit 60-80 on lakes in some bad ass sleek bass hunters, too.

No doubt it take brass, no, stainless steel balls to race offshore fast boats (or maybe an fair amount of insanity )

My first boat was a 16' super lite jet boat with a 455 Olds bored .120 and used chevy 454 rods making it 483 CID. Lots of Modello Olds parts , Jacuzzie jet drive , 0 to 73 mph within 100 yards . Then bought a 18' Crownline that would hit 53 with a speed prop. Sold both and got a 24'8" Crownline (248) and it hits 61 mph with the tight chop on the water. Fixing to drop the hammer on a new 21' Tri toon pontoon with a big Merc on the back. I'm getting old and don't like working on them like I used too. I'm a mechanic and did all mantainace and engine and drive work on my boats . Everyone bitches about how a boat is a money pit, but all mine never left me stranded . Take care of your shit and keep it in good working order and you won't have problems , at least in my experiences.

Had it up to 58 MPH. Fast enough for me.

850 Holley double-pumper sitting on an Edelbrock Torker 2-0 intake, sitting on an LS6, hooked to a Panther jet drive. ~65mph or so.



It was a blast, and the fish cops hated it. Sold it a while back, and now, I get to stand on the fucking shore. Yay me.

I think that's the same for every motorized toy but you might have the occasional starter or whatever issue.

Not fast by any means but I do have a bass boat that will run in the upper 70's.

Center consoles now reach 70 mph... I got ejected at 55. Month in bed, year plus to recover. Have run a couple go fast types like Magnum, Scarrab in the 75-80 range. Hell... The 70' Sportfish I ran last summer tops out at 40 mph.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 2:48:48 AM EST
Buddy of mine has one of those drag race boats.

It runs 220-250 mph on the water. Stupid fast.


I've been near it with it out of the water.. Never ridden in it, one seater, but I've watched it race.

Crazy fast.

I'm not sure how he holds on in those turns, I can throw myself off on a 750, hitting corners twice that size.

I had a 38 foot Larry Smith Scarab flat-deck with twin staggered 540's pushing 17.25 x 29 cleavers. Hull was Kevlar/carbon fiber with D-ring bulkheads up front, no cabin.
