Which hull gives you the best top speed, provided the lay up for each hull is stone stock, same power , same reverse gear , same wheel.. my reason for asking is that through the grapevine i have heard John Hutchins sez the 38 will give you the higher top speed within these parameters.. i'm guessing you may have locked horns with the Mystery Machine in the past with the 410 sisu..(thought this question may prompt racing discussion on these cold ass january days.) Thanks, David O.

You can fit a bigger prop on a 38', so that is definitely an advantage to the 38', and the larger hull will carry the same weight more efficiently.
