I have a 210 with a 225 HPDI. I've owned the boat for right at a year and cannot get the boat over 71 mph (GPS) by myself. The boat is tournament loaded, but this still seems a little slower than other posts I've read on these boats. Not really a speed freak usually, since I almost ALWAYS have kids with me. I am getting into more tournaments now, though, and couldn't live with a Skeeter leaving me behind. I fish out of Kilgore bass club, which is Skeeter's hometown. 10 of 17 boats are Skeeters in the club. Any pointers or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
