  1. My 1995 STV River Rocket, "HOT ! SPOT" Been running her since 2002. With the 280 hp, was finally able to reach over 112 mph. Been thru 3 powerheads now. Currently running a 260 hp. under the Alien cowl.
  2. 1995 STV RIVER ROCKET with Mercury 2.5 (260) with 29, 30, and 32" Props. 107.1 achieved using 29" Mazco at 7200 rpm using brand new GPS with WAAS accuracy. Have run the 32" Mercury Chopper at 106 at approx. 7k but water conditions here in Puget Sound, Tacoma, Wash., makes it hard to reach the speeds I seek. I have named her "HOT! SPOT". My nickname is Doctor D. so the RIVER ROCKET logo has been modified. Now it reads "DR. D's Rocket Ship" in the logo font. Then I obtained a 280 hp. 2.5L and the fun started again. For a very long time I had the 110 mph barrier. Most of the time i just ran out of water before getting over the 109.6 mark. Finally was able to do it and with the 32 Chopper @ 112.6 mph. She is red and white 4-Seater River Rocket and has the factory engraving "RACEBOAT" under the Hull ID # for whatever that is worth. I am a marine technician with 40 years education and experience working for a large dealerships. Certified in Mercury, Mercruiser, OMC, Evinrude, and the list goes on.
