Not so .. have you been on a boat with a Verado 275 or 300 ?.. power transmission is instantaneous in mid range, and quite unbelievable
Not having experienced this with other outboards, I'm at a loss to explain the dynamics, but it can be done ... and no it is not just the supercharger
.. I've said on other posts, slip is what you expect, but you just dont get that, they seem to just bite , so I'm sure its possible with even more power up top.. convention would say there must be a limit though
