I am sure this has been asked but I could not find it. I realize these boats are for pulling, but what is the top speed? I am specifically asking for the CRAZ with Raptor 400. I ask because I have one son that likes to slalom and wondering how fast this boat will go.

Thanks,

Clark

Depends on what prop you have and your elevation. Typically it's somewhere around eleventy hectares per fortnight, give or take an angstrom.

38mph with the oj 945, couple mph faster with the non hi altitude prop. You're in the 5000+ rpm in that range though.

Sorry, just being a smart ass. But in reality, it varies a lot. With the standard prop, it's around 35mph dive or take. Boats aren't like cars which all have the same top speed from the factory. In boats you can changed their top speed and pulling power, by changing the pitch of the prop. Higher pitch = higher top speed, slower hole shot and less pulling power, and vice verse for lower pitch props.
And the elevation your boating at effects the top speed and pulling power as well.

LOL it's all good. Its funny now that I understand it covers an area in a certain amount of time with an itty bitty variation.

Wow. That is a little discouraging. My 2005 Moomba Möbius LSV had the standard 5.7 325 HP engine It also had the standard prop and top speed was about 42-43 MPH. I pulled my son on a slalom at 36 MPH Not sure what RPM that was turning. I am not wanting a fast boat was was hoping for about the same. I would only be pulling at that speed with empty ballast. I am in Central Georgia so no high altitude

Your 05 LSV topped the scales at 3,000 lbs and the Craz comes in at 4,200 lbs. The newer hulls are designed for displacement vs speed. My first boat was an 08 Outback V which was the same hull as the 05 LSV and the difference between that boat and what we have now is amazing.

Again, apples to oranges. Your 2005 weighed 1000lb less than say a 2017 Craz, and probably had a 13x14 or 13x13 prop. You could make a Craz or Mojo do 50mph if you want, but it would suck for surfing with 3000lb of extra ballast in it. That's why there's a myriad of props available so that you choose the right prop for your boat for the speed and application you want. So don't be discouraged.... because there's no reason to be.

Are you guys saying if I liked the 2005 LSV I will LOVE the 2017 Craz??

I'm in south ga we run lake blackshear and in our lsv and mojo we ran 38ish with 12-12.5 pitch prop. I m running an 11 pitch on my supra and can still get 38 with the 440 and a 5300lb boat.

Get two props and a prop puller and just swap EM out depending on what you want to do that day. Calls nettles, they will give you all the information you can handle

Not exactly sure what top speed your going to truely get. That really depends on what prop you run.. You should get 36 ...but with the hull of that boat, I highly doubt you would want to ski that fast behind that boat.. Yes I get with speed the wake will flatten somewhat but at best this is still gonna be a big wake. Sadly not something I would even dream of using skiing a course etc especially at that speed.. Should put up a great surf wake though

We definitely would not be slaloming on a course. I think he likes to ski at about 26 mph so the speed should be fine. I know the bags would need to be empty and maybe use the wake plate to push the nose down a little to help flatten the wake. Thanks for all the tips
