    I believe you guys are at a pretty high elevation too (800ft?)
    That should make for a 80mph boat in 70° temps at sea level.
    I guess some of us are just lucky

    820

    We are at 820 feet elevation

    there is no luck involved in it.......it is hard work

    DETAILS

    its all in the details

    i think there is a lot of speed to be had by fcussing on the bottom of the boat.

    i have spent many nights laying under there with silicone, epoxy, and sand paper.

    check your block offs to make sure there not hanging down.
    check the intake grate to make sure it is not hanging down and the holes are siliconed/ epoxied up.

    on my intake grate holes i silicone them....let them set for a couple days then sand them smooth.

    just silicone in the grate holes alone if hanging down can rob speed.

    SKEGS.....................what else do i need to say there......make sure they are straight......

    last but not least RPM always be turning 8100....and as Vern says shoot for the 81 ring...

    I agree,I turnned off 2 79 mph runs this weekend also..Many of hours sanding filling holes and cracks..cleaning up the pump tunnel.even minor details in the engine compartment..every little bit helps in the long run.
