The mono Pro V boat by Buzzi with a single 1050hp seatek must be one of the fastest in ready to race trim, as in a qualifying run I think it achieved 114mph

CFUN - Don't think a SeaTek engine could qualify as an outboard
Very strong transom would be in order!?

Rhino had a 19ft Phantom which went down lake Windemere at 93mph or thereabouts, would of gone faster but ran out of prop !! Pretty fast for a such a small boat

Then I am confused.. If Paul Brooks averaged 86.92 to set the National record Outboard Imersed Prop Monohull, why is this the record if Rhino has an official certificate showing a higher speed?

As neil said, at the time he did the attempt, he didn't enter as a record attempt for any particular class, just a performance certificate, like it says on the tin. tis still 90.62 though! Kin quick in such a small 'offshore' hull, not to be confused with things like Hydrostreams.

I assume Rhino put the boat together purely for the attempt, and hadn't actually competed in a race with it, or perhaps it didn't meet class rules.

Or I could be talking bollix!

I suspect this to be true.
The particular 'class' for the record has no eligibility rules and no restrictions at all. It is any monohull, powered by an outboard engine, driving an imersed propellor.

There is a similar version for the inboard monohull, imersed propellor, held by howard strethham in his proVee at something like 98 mph..

Howard could have gone quicker, but he'd heard that fuel had gone up by 2p a litre!
