    Little update on the Procomp, Seen 117.6 mph GPS last week taching 8250 on the water and I know it's got more. I am having a slight issue, without extra weight in the middle of the boat(was on a service call with 60lbs of tools) it wants to start porpoising uncontrollable almost every time. Not just at 70-80mph it's from 25-104mph(when I lifted). But with the extra weight it's very controlable. I'm running a Merc lab Lighnting ET 14 1/2 x 30. Any ideas? Maybe engine set to high? Boat not balanced?

    I know a little bit, I was told it when denis vittallo owned this boat 125 to 130 was what it did everytime out. I wish I knew more history on this boat. I was looking around and it seems that most pro comps are 4 seaters, this one is single center steer. The rear race fairing on it weights like5 pounds. I also got a rear fairing with a seat (2 small ppl could fit) made of fiberglass that I would guess would weigh around 100#. I do know I love it.
