P21 Patriot used to run around 85 in flat water, that had a Chris Lewis 2.5 at about 330hp... then again I don't know how much of a difference there is between the P20 and P21 at speed.

I did over 80 in yours when i managed to keep the pedal to the metal for about 2mins, frightening the slightest breeze/ripple/throttle twitch stops you going in a straight line! Once you fight past 70mph things get scary!

Tha's easily believable... this was just what we've seen since we had it and it's always had the potential to be much lighter.
