just wanted to start a friendly competition on who could achieve the highest speed that they possibly could, i personally have gotten 105mph before backing off of the throttle due to lack of space. i'd love to hear anybody elses numbers!

how long do you run it until you reach 126?
ive never created a boat with this little amount of deadrise, does it flip often? turn well?

You can run it right up to speed pretty quickly. Around 120 you'll need to have your finger on trim to keep it from blowing over. Does NOT turn well. Straight line boat for sure. But yeah it will definitely flip. With the right amount of trim and jackplate you can carry that speed though.

That setup with no trim and the jackplate set at 5 will get you 122.
