For the above average boater, you can expect something closer to the 80's maybe low 90's with the 300X. A friend of mine has a 20DX with a modified HO (approx 280 hp) on it that runs 92 but he has spent a lot of money and time on his setup.

I hear what your saying about the average boater. Your probably right. The thing is though, that the boat they tested...is for sale as tested for $49,000. I don't think that there are too many average boaters out there who would have the cajones to take the boat to its limit, rather than the boat wouldn't do it unless it had an expert driver although I agree that Paul Nichols can drive the crap out of it and he will get every last mph out of it.
100mph on the water is a hell of allot different than 100 on land. For those who have done 85 mph on water and think that its not that much more to go 100-110mph...you would be in for a rude awaking around 95. I have been in a hot-rod race boat with a friend of mine out in Oregon doing 125mph.We had the guys from the County Marine Patrol radar us from two different locations, one on a bridge above us as we passed them and another in a boat facing us down the lake. One clocked us at 129 and the other at 125 so we just went with the lower of the two. The 125 reading was from a gun that been calibrated recently.

I hear it's tough to get insurance on those rigs. Any feedback on that?
You know I am an insurance agent...never insured anything like that though. But, I will look into it and do a quote on the Bullet I mentioned. I will get back and let you know.
