Two 800hp-ish mercruisers on that cat would probably do 135mph I reckon...

Jonny Fuller/Dirk Diggler/Cookee would know best!
135mph no problem - Gas Turbines are becoming almost common out there - the Poker Run boats are faster than the race boats because there are no horsepower limitations!

not enough buttons/dials

There are nowhere enough shiny dials and buttons on the boat
