I really miss the performance of my bass boats. I'd like to have a Skeeter or Ranger bass boat with a 620 windshield.
Some bay boats seem to cross the line of fast and sea worthy with a windshield.

I am propped for control and not speed (stock Yamaha stainless prop) and I don’t have a hydraulic jack plate. I can run on plane at about 14 mph and can get out of the hole within a few boat lengths as long as I am not super heavy in the stern.

I was thinking about this question a few days ago. I was also going to post it.
I retire in about 8.5 years and plan to get a retirement boat. For the most part I like to cruise around at 35-40mph but I do like to crank it up when the situation calls for it. I want to fish more bass tournaments when I retire so a 250hp will be max for me. My buddy has a 2014 620 with a 250 verado and a 9.9 kicker. He can consistently get 58-61 out of it without a jack plate. When I had my zv18 it would do 50mph, maybe 52 on a good chop. I would always get smoked leaving in the morning for a bass tournament then when the wind kicked up those bass boats didn't dare keep up with me. From all my research when I was contemplating going with a 20ft boat the triton 206 hull and the yarcraft 209 were the fastest with a 250hp. I have never ridden in either of those two but I think research also showed that the ranger had the best ride out of any of them. So for me, I think a 60mph boat with an amazing ride would probably trump a 62-65mph boat with a not so great ride.
I was also considering buying a used bass boat and keeping my G3 185 angler for multispecies days but I am sick of maintaining two boats and multiple engines. I am thinking a do-all ultimate multispecies will probably be the ticket!

If you plan to fish with two men on the front deck you might look at the shape of some front decks.

I don't doubt a Triton with a 250 SHO can run 60. I do have doubts about reaching that speed with a full tank, full load of gear, and 4 adults. Unless some of those 4 people are awfully light weight there would be speed lost regardless of the motor and hull brand.

Ok. Happy to prove it to you sometime.

I had a 2050 Reata with a 250 Pro XS on it. 8" Hydraulic Jack plate. 24P Bravo I FS. Low fuel, not a lot of gear, super cold day in the late season on Devils Lake. Running downwind on 12" waves. I was skipping across the tops and the boat was flying a lot more than it was floating. Terrible, I mean absolutely terrible, hole shot but knew that was going to be the case with a 24". I saw 64.3 gps. That's the fastest I ever got that tub to go and it was a handful to drive in that configuration:
jackplate to the moon and trimmed up. A lot of chine walk and not for the weak at heart. On long runs you could really dial in the motor height and trim position to the points that very small changes would either scrub or add speed.

I usually ran a 21P Tempest + and that was a pretty dang good all around prop that would give me 58 to high 59 depending on ambient conditions and load.

209 yarcraft,250 Verado, kicker,full of fuel, full of gear,2 people,61mph. That is running a 22.5 Bravo LT.
Best ride too in my opinion, flat or chop.

Speed debates? There's the visits to the fuel pumps to consider also. The last 2 marina pumps I hit were $4.55/gal & $5.05/gal. Hammer down!!

I commented on multispecies top end speeds vs fuel vs time really being saved on this thread: https://www.walleyecentral.com/forum...=725664&page=3

For top end speeds, consider a bass boat 'cuz ya' won't it it with a 250 on any multispecies boat (I'm not calling them a walleye boat )

And if you fly, what time are you looking to save? This site covers the math: https://www.calculatorsoup.com/calcu...calculator.php

Happy fishing!!
