If I were to repower with a 300x. What do you think I could expect for speed? Mid 80s? I'm excited to possibly get back into a checkmate.

Thanks for the help
A 2.5 200 is great on a 21 Pulsare, the closed bow would be slightly faster. Expect 68-69 MPH. Sounds like you're talking about a Pulse though, very different, heavier deeper hull. The Pulsare has a pad bottom and is reasonably light. Starflites, Starliners don't and don't run as fast.
