    I have a pair of 300's and had the boat going 51-52 knots when brand new with a full tank of gas when I first ran from Bellingham to Everett.

    Fishing the Friday harbor classic. If anyone wants to run up from Everett together lets stay in touch.

    Why the hell would you think that a fishing boat hull is good at 55knots? That’s ridiculous and absolutely not what those hulls are designed for

    Not everything that is fun is good. And not everything that is good is fun.
    Applies to boats and the marrraige advice thread right?

    I guess cause America is my only response. Plus they put a lot into safe top speed due to liability from the manufacturer. Swinging big balls and laying down a big carbon footprint and taking risks is just part of American culture. I'll never drive a grossly overpowered boat...however, the manufacturer has their gross rating and Yamaha says run them to the pin once each trip...no shit. I'll keep it up unless it's foggy or there is too much drift in the water or I don't feel safe. We do have to do high RPM tests to make sure we are propped right. MAGA 6000 RPM in 2020.

    Not to say that you're not a good patriotic American. I'm sure you are and mean no disrespect. As I mean none to you.

    There are 2 speeds in a boat. Neutral and wide open. Not much room for anything else. I’m sad because my wide open is only 34 knots......
