My uncles got a Sea Doo RXP.... supercharged and intercooled... she topps out at 72mph stock on premium gas, thats freeking flying on a sea doo, up at there cottage theres lots of boats that top out at 50-60mph goin flying around and theres nothin better than playing with them pissing them off when you go ducking behind an islan at 50mph and pull back out at 70 and pass them like there standing still, and burning alot less fuel, this is me sittin on the thing bobin around waiting for the other guys on the GTX's to catch up

Yeah! He wants everything to go faster, especially his boat, thats his baby, its a 96 or something, it was originally Davy Hite's boat and when the tornado hit and a barn roof came down on top it, man I thought he was goin to cry, it still looks good, just not near as good as it did before. But it still looks great..

You can fly around in the bay in your brick, but this only weighs about 4,200 lbs. It has dyno tuned props from merc and an offshore racing stainless hydraulic steering. Its also only 27 feet.

Kryptonite Boats located in Long Island, New York was founded in 1996 by Kirk Rogers and specializes in custom built performance boats. Kryptonite builds approximately 20 boats a year which allows for a strict adherence to quality. The 270 F-1 Race Series as well as the 270 Sport and Center Console versions are based on 22 degree stepped bottom with a pad and 8 foot beam. The result is a stable, efficient and fast hull which runs well in all types of water. An integrated swim platform is available onall models and stretches the boat to a full 29 feet. Additionally, each model is available in single or twin inboard/outboard and single or twin outboard versions. So whether your pursuits lie in F-1 Factory Racing, Poker Runs, or offshore fishing, we are sure to have a model which can be custom built to your specifications.
Never said your boat wasnít nice, I love boats and I had a welcraft nova II before this one and grew up around them my whole life. Itís just hard to believe your boat goes that fast not saying it canít just hard to believe! As for my brick in the water. With a 5 or 6 foot chop or wave whatever you want to call it, your boat wouldnít and couldnít do 96mph or even 50mph thatís were the design in the hull, HP, props, and boat come into play. Thatís what my boat and other "go fast" boat were made to do. We have two different boats each very nice and each made to do two totally different things. If you want to know more info about my boat look up cigarette c-a-f-e racer. (without the dash. lawnsite wont let me type in c-a-f-e without the dash)

I also still cannot believe how that boat will hit 74mph. There is a 31 Yellowfin in OIB with twin Yamaha 350 V8's that will only hit 68...and they are BUILT...if you truly did get your boat to run 74 then please check out SKA.com and have them come do a story on your boat...I would love to know more about it in detail. AGAIN...im not trying to start ****....I just cannot mentally believe this, the facts just dont make sense at all. However it is a nice boat.

A few more, some old some new pics...my old 05' sea doo rxt which I should have never sold. Nothing like being able to pull a tube, have a passenger, and have room for enough beverages and other necessities for a full day. And being able to get close to 70mph even in decent chop is always fun on a ski. I almost pulled the trigger this year on the new anny edition sea doo rxt x 255hp but wasnt able to get myself to drop 14k on a ski...

Cant take full credit for the 07' basscat P2 anniversary edition as it is my old man's but I do enjoy getting use out of it for sure. 200 merc (really 224hp I think?), best speed so far is 71mph with 2 guys and near full tournament load. We still have to fine tune the jackplate and hoping to get a few more mph. Its usually quite an event at the boatramp with questions and comments about the rims coming from guys you would never expect to like shiny 20s. My dad had an 88' ranger bass boat before this bass cat so it was quite the upgrade.
