    In the video he says it's not a race boat, it's a family boat. Pretty wild family boat. And a Tuff would be fun to see with one of these on it.

    Agreed and yes, I did hear that in the audio. But my Progression 22 is a family boat too and it runs a couple of ticks under 90 MPH with only 250 HP.

    But 20 inches of it is a step platform not running hull.

    The Velocity has a cabin.

    Hmmm. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to track down the owner of the 450 P22 and get a top speed.

    88mph with a 250R and 94mph with a 300XS for Progression's 22. 450R ?

    At these higher speeds does 10hp still get you about 1mph or is it all in the set up. Time will tell.

    gotta add the extra weight in to consideration as well

    my thought is, was the 22 ever built to run well over a 100? Especially with that much weight hanging off the back

    Prop is a 30 pitch Bravo - gear ratio is 1.75 - limiters are set at 6400 - speed calculates to 103.4

    Is he running any kind of ballast up front?

    I know a guy with a 20' Lake and Bay with the 250 SHO nizpro S/C It does 101. So 475 hp? IDK about that. Did mid 80's with the same 250 Stock. Same hull with 300 XS would run high 90's. He was expecting more.
