Goldfish 29 with 625 Ilmore does 78 knots.

Good sound and awsome punch in the engine.

And a Pasoe SR9 with 2x300s was reputed to do the magic ton!!!

I would LOVE a boat capable of such speeds but I suspect the water would need to be pretty flat to do it - 25kts feels incredibly fast in the right conditions..........

Hi Codprawn
ive driven the boat in pretty rough seas (2 meter waves)
and since it got a stepped hull it was another experience since i was used to
conventional v bottoms.
But i was positively surpriced about how well the boat handeled.

The world goes forward!

Did you know stepped hulls have been around since the late 1800s??? Nothing really new out there!!!

When you drove it in 2m waves what speed were you doing?
