2x115 hp on a 7.5 rib will make it go like sh*t off a shovel, right?

I wouldn't cruise at full throttle, or even at 75% I wouldnt have thought.

Nah mine goes from bad to worse at WOT. Chris' engine, which I did the comparison with, is much better at all speeds including WOT.

It depends on the weight and wind resistance of your rib. About 50mph.

You can cruise at whatever you like, it's your boat.
