Not that bad really - it's what you're used to. We make a 60+ mph sub 8 metre RIB that you can turn at full speed and take your hands of the wheel flat out in calm conditions - the race boat is very stable at over 90 mph - Coniston had gusty side winds, and it only require very small corrections to the wheel to keep it stable, but I am very used to driving that boat fast! By the way on the record runs I had plenty of time to check revs and water pressure as well as trim and lifter positions during the runs, don't forget the luxury you have on record runs is that you won't meet anyone coming the other way!
The Revenger is a longer boat with a good strong motor with HP and Torque, so you don't have to "hang it out" to get those speeds I would imagine, so if it's flat or a little choppy those speeds would be surprisingly comfortable I would think - those hulls are successful for a reason!
