The 196 is a different animal than the new hull, seems to have a bit more drag.
Is the limiter the same 5600 on the Indmar/Ilmore 6.0L's? What do the 197 6.0L's run for top end? I assume around 47-48mph?
Agreed that the 200 hull has a whole lot more drag than the 196. Seems to be a lot closer to the 197 in that regard now. Both the 200 and 197 seem to run quite a bit slower than the 196 when comparing like powertrains.
