  a little more speed out if I ran it in the afternoon when air temp   
  was at 70.  Just bought the GPS, spent rest of the week fishing.  
  So I will play around with speed and gps next time.  Has a Dual  
  Pro charger, power pedestals, and butt seats.  That speed was  
  with full tank and tackle, me and my son not bad.  Stripers were   
  on big time the week after Christmas, just wanted to throw that   
  in for everybody back east.  I usually run it at 4200 rpms.

  GT150 loves the cold air though. To run real rough water you've  
  got to drive the boat, but it never gives you a feeling that it's   
  going to come out from underneath you.  This is one of Nitro's  
  first REAL boats and has the lines you don't find anymore.
