    58ish. With some easy bolt ons they do go 60. Pump wedge, prop, AAT will put that boat in the 60 range. BTW, this is the 97 and up we are talking about. The 96 is a hair slower.

    My brother's '97 SL did 60.2 with a full tank of gas by GPS. Probably would do near 61 if we'd let it warm up a little more and tried with less gas/weight.

    I believe he was asking about the sltx but your info is good on the "sl" models.

    I only asked because an acquaintance told me his would hit 80 and I told him there was no way. I guessed in the 58-60 range on glass but he wouldn't believe me so I suggested we ask the experts at greenhulk. Thanks for the help guys. It's much appreciated.

    Just for the record....My X45 and my Genesis FFI both hit around 85-86mph....when I'm towing them to my cabin in northern Wisconsin.
