    Maiden Voyage

    Well it was a beautiful sunny 80% day in San Antonio, TX yesterday so I took my new 2007 Speedster 150 (155hp) out on its maiden voyage on Medina Lake. At first when I launched it seemed very squirrely at low speed compared to my old skis and boats Iíve driven but after I got use to the fill of it was fine. Iím in my 10 hour break-in so I only WOT a couple of times but here the GPS stats.

    - Full tank of gas and about 450 pounds in passengers = 42mph
    - Just my fat a** (220 Pounds) and almost a full tank of gas = 47.5mph

    When I was riding by myself I really tried to throw the boat around with tight turns, high speed turns, etc. and it was amazing how well it handled. Final decision on the boat, I Love it!!!

    A few things I noted that I will change for this summer.

    1. The stock stereo sound sucks. I will change the speakers to Alpines and see how much that helps before I change the Head Unit. Also you must have a remote. Itís a pain in the A** have to reach over to the radio to adjust the sound every time you speedup or slow down. I will start with the I-Rock Remote as it has a lot of versatility with the ability to move it around.

    2. Get a Bimini Top. I want one for when we a just cruising or floating.

    3. Just a little more speed and thrust (A guy thing I guess). I may upgrade to a Solas Concord SR-CD 11/19 impeller and some type of modified RIVA GTX-SC Power Air Filter Kit. Has anyone done this on a 155hp engine?

    Well thatís about it for now. Iím thankful that the boating season starts early here in southern Texas and sorry for you Yankees!

    SPD5535, I see that youíre running SR-CD 11/19 impellers on your boat so does that mean you have twin 155hp engines? If so did you see any improvement in speed and/or thrust when you added them? Did you do any other performance mods? Thnaks!

    Yes, I run twin 155's. I didn't notice much of a difference at top speed but I did notice an improvement in hole-shot and mid-range. I would definately do it again. I have not done anything else but I'm debating about running fresh air intakes.......
