It's all about the proppin' gonad boy.
If top end is yer thing, then prop for it, but you'll sacrifice all the good low down stuff that you'll need for decent heavy weather handling.
I doubt very much if you'll ever see 55knts out of a 6.5/200HO combo, unless you get into fancy race props, which would kill any hole shot, grip or acceleration. Every knot over 50 will be very hard gained.
The Vipermax hull isn't built for speed, there are plenty of lighter, pointier things out there if that's your bag.
