    Speeds. The Warlock ran 64 mph gps stock last fall when I bought it for her.
    Prop change and the nitrous I,m hoping she,ll be content with about 70 mph.And thats a big maybe on the 70.
    That Warlock weighs 2300 lbs with 60 gal of fuel in her. Now the jetboat reportly ran 82 mph but I think the guy I bought it from don,t know didley.
    I,d say from the setup, probably runs about 70 mph. Never drove it yet.
    Avengers were very fast hulls in there day. Never had a jet before but I know they take lots of hp to break 80. the Avenger has 206 hrs on the clock, third motor in it. One owner boat. Theres another 454 in the background for a spare. I hear jetboats blow up alot. lol Raider
