Glad you're liking the new MC.
HP tells only part of the tale when it comes to speed and acceleration for a boat. Prop (as has been mentioned), weight, and hull characteristics (shape and wetted surface) are all factors. All things being equal, HP for HP, the older boats will typically go a bit faster and have more hole shot. But that's why they're great ski boats and not so great wakeboard/surfboard boats.
