Bayou Princess 74.8 mph *Full Tank*
Not too bad for a girls ski
Her mods are:
Riva air intake
Riva thru hull exhaust
15/20R with my pitch
GH rideplate skegs
I just hit 74.8 with a full tank. 8100 RPM's at 8.0 PSI boost with stock SC impeller.
We will be on the water all day so i'll get a nearly empty speed reading later.
The rideplate holes still aren't filled yet. That should bring another 1 mph.

thats awesome! 74.8 with little mods! im guessing those skegs help out a lot.

the skegs work great. i found a downfall about them today though. they work so well at building lift that at very high speed the slightest wave will cause you to come unhooked

thats not good considering i ride in the bay and ocean with lots of wakes and all.

Jerry does the speed have anything to do with the 15/20 impeller. im running a 14/19 and just wondering what one is better to run with a stage 2 kit.

at lower speeds the skegs work great in chop.
its just at super high top end speeds that i noticed this. even without skegs a wave will cause you to bounce at high speed. just with the skegs it seems a little more prone to it.
if you have an intercooler you need to be running a 15/20
worlds of difference when pitched right

air is 78 water is 78. its a beautiful day out on the water. sure miss my ski. despite how good careys is running it doesn't even hold a candle to what mine was in the acceleration department.
