    Utopia faster than a speedster??

    Long story short my buddy has a 08 utopia. Today we took it on a 4 hour cruise and I couldn't get over how much faster it feels than my boat or even my other buddies baja. The speedo was only reading 56mph but it felt like we were going so much faster. I busted out my trusty gps and flat out with 3 people and a 1/4 tank this thing was recording 66 almost 67 mph!! Is this normal for a 430hp utopia? How fast are the speedsters?

    I just bought an 08 Utopia this year and have had it @ 67 on the gps. However three weeks ago the ceramic washers blew on both sc at the same time......Yes both! the boat only has 48hrs on it and I had planed on replacing to the metal washers the winter but to late, now Jerry is doing a complete rebuild for me for $860 and that includes parts labor and shipping. Thanks to this form I know what I need to do and what to look for when I get the engines out. I just hope the damage is minimal. Please tell your friend to switch to metal washers it will take maybe three hours and around $100

    One of his failed just after break in. He got lucky his boats under warranty so seadoo replaced both with metal washers. He's thinking about throwing x chargers on it now.
