Hull Speed: ProjectX64 vs 2010Superstar

Had a Dagger Kingpin 6.3 Icon. 4 seasons of banging down low water runs and I wore through the floor. Very sad. Hell of a boat. Fast as Fuck.

I've heard from one source I trust that the Project X64 is faster on flatwater than my current Superstar. Nothing like the speed of the Kingpin but that's ok.

I ask specifically of flatwater speed versus wave speed since I mostly do downriver playboating not wave boating. Thanks.

Bahahahaha! Nothing like a good old fashion turtle race. If I had to pick the fastest of the slowest boats ever made I'll put my dollar on the one with the strongest arms! Sorry to here you fuck so fast. you might slow down and enjoy the ride.

If you are looking at fast downriver boating, why not look at playful river runners, like a Jackson Fun or Pyranha Loki, and other similar boats?

Just performed a double blind study and it turns out both the px and super* accelerate at 32.2 fps squared when dropped from a building at sea level. Hope this helps.

Re: pacing
Man, I gotta slow it dowwwwn. Maybe some R&B first...

Re: Braap
Yah! Not a bad idea on the Braap. i'd love to get my mitts on it but that's a chunk of change.

Re: PX64
Thanks for the word on speed, Flip.
