top speed on x2

Hey...just wondering what your REAL top speeds on the x2 or equivilant are?

I was told by my dealer it should be just under 50 MPH. When I got the boat, the spedo read 48MPH on the stock prop full out. Since then, I replaced the stock with OJ's stainless version of the stocker on a warranty issue (14x18). I also put perfect pass on at the same time I swapped props. Because the PP and the spedo did not agree (PP read slower than the spedo), I used a good GPS to calibrate both to REAL speed. I was shocked to find that the PP was reading accurate, and the spedo was about 8 MPH high. Top real speed is just over 40 MPH. Is this right? From what I have been told, the stainless should run the same speed as nibrile if not slightly faster.

Just wanted to know what other x2/209's were doing, real gps speed.

Also, while my PP and spedo are calibrated accurately to 22 MPH, the faster you go, there is discrepancy. What I mean is, at full throttle, PP reads 41 MPH, spedo reads 48 MPH. Both read 22 MPH at real GPS 22 MPH, at full throttle PP matches GPS real speed (41 MPH), but the spedo creeps up and reads 48 MPH. Anyone else ever see this?

Gps on 03 209 MCX 48 after hook was sprayed on the hull......03 197 LQ9 w/bimini and tower 47-48 @ 4950RPM. My personal experience. 40 for an X2 sounds slow. I had also owned a 00 205v and it was 45-46with 310Hp.

What do you mean by "after the hook was sprayed on the hull"?

a hook is simply a 1/4 inch 'lip' of gelcoat that is added to the back end of the boat on the bottom to keep it from porpoising (if thats a word). I had it done on my X9 (under warranty) and it makes a huge difference.

Exactly what Chris posted. My 03 209 bounced like a bucking bull at top end speeds. Made for terrible footing. After the dealer sprayed the hook into the rear, all was good. It slowed the boat don a few MPH but much better. The hook is like a upside down ramp on the trailing edge of the hull. It forces the nose back into the water, thus creating more friction and loss of a few MPH.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Yep, sure is. Can't give specifics but anytime you run the boat with more or less of the static hull in the water the wake will change. I believe this was one of the difference between the 02 197 and
02 197 TT. I think (not sure) that in 03 the 197 and 197 TT were set up identical.
