18' Marlin Leo 455 Olds at about 400 hp.  My friends jet ski topped out at 55 and I was pulling away slowly. My guess is around 58 mph at 5000 rpm.

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
