Oh, the Twin 620HP GM or 625HP Viper V-10 engines are quite stout enough?

You want to go 150MPH instead?

Check out the RC-28 with Twin 1000HP 625CI Pro Stock engines.

Hey, watch where you point that thing!

Jeez, if I bought that thing, where would I keep the snowblower??

What's the fuel consumption like? Damn!!!!

Soon somebody's going to be using it to run illegals across the border.

The Navy has something for that, their own Deck Boat.  57.5MPH

Engines: 2 GE LM2500 gas turbine engines; 2 MTU 16V 595 TE90 propulsion diesel engines; 4 Rolls-Royce Kamewa 125SII waterjets · Operating crew: 26 · Top speed: 50 knots (57.5 mph, 92.6 kph) · Cost of experimental ship: $80 million

A New Design for a New Mission
The Sea Fighter is an aluminum catamaran designed to operate effectively in littoral, or coastal, waters. It can maneuver in as little as 11 feet (3.35 m) of water. The hull number FSF-1 stands for "fast sea frame" and is the first U.S. Naval vessel to have a catamaran design. The experimental vessel will be used to test the hydrodynamic performance, structural performance, structural behavior, mission flexibility and propulsion-system efficiency of high-speed vessels.
Photo courtesy U.S. NavyA multi-purpose stern ramp will allow Sea Fighter to launch and recover manned and unmanned surface and sub-surface vehicles up to the size of a Rigid-Hull Inflatable Boat.
The ship's design is flexible to meet the needs of multiple missions. More than 12 20-foot mission modules can be housed in the ship's mission bay, which allows the vessel to be quickly reconfigured to support a variety of potential tasks including battle force protection, mine countermeasures, anti-submarine warfare, amphibious assault support and humanitarian support.
A multi-purpose stern ramp allows the ship to launch and recover manned and unmanned surface and sub-surface vehicles up to the size of an 11-meter Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB). From its flight deck, the Sea Fighter can operate while supporting two H-60 helicopters or vertical takeoff and landing tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (VTUAV) at a time.
To reduce vibration and noise, many of the ship's internal surfaces are covered with a coating of QuietShip, a viscoelastic polymer that can be applied to aluminum, steel and composite-hull vessels. The coating offers naval ship builders a way to reduce noise by up to 70 percent, according to developer Quiet Solution. On the Sea Fighter, QuietShip reduces noise by 15 decibels.

he Sports Car of the Seas
Compared to larger, conventional warships, the Sea Fighter is faster and more agile. Some have compared its performance to that of sports car. The Sea Fighter can reach a top speed of 50 knots (57.5 mph, 92.6 kph) with a full payload and is designed to reach speeds of 40 knots (46 mph, 74 km/hr) in rough seas with waves up to 7 feet (2.13 meters).
The Sea Fighter has four Rolls Royce Kamewa 125 SII waterjets, which deliver a combined 50.4 megawatts of power and offer great maneuverability. The independent waterjets make sideways movement possible, simplifying operations and berthing.

The waterjets are powered by two GE LM2500 gas turbine engines and two MTU 16-valve propulsion diesel engines.
FSF-1 Sea Fighter: Facts and Figures· Length: 262 feet (79.86 meters) · Width: 72 feet (22 meters) · Weight: 950 tons · Engines: 2 GE LM2500 gas turbine engines; 2 MTU 16V 595 TE90 propulsion diesel engines; 4 Rolls-Royce Kamewa 125SII waterjets · Operating crew: 26 · Top speed: 50 knots (57.5 mph, 92.6 kph) · Cost of experimental ship: $80 million
The Crew
Changes to the crew are nearly as revolutionary as the ship's design. The small Sea Fighter requires a crew of just 26 (16 Navy sailors and 10 Coast Guardsmen). The crew is made up of five officers and 21 enlisted personnel. With such a small crew, each member must be very knowledgeable of the ship and balance multiple duties.
Photo courtesy U.S. NavyThe Sea Fighter is a small ship that offers great mission flexibility.
"The thing that's really unique about this crew is that since there's only 26 of us, the engineers can't concentrate just on engineering and the navigators can't just concentrate on navigation," said Navy Lt. Cmdr. Brandon Bryan. "Everyone has to know everyone else's business. So my engineers know how to drive the ship, my guys who drive the ship know how to go down and start the diesel."
The mix of Navy and Coast Guard crew will also provide a cross-section of expertise that can be used for various missions.
"I think the Navy brings their vast experience of operating in a Department of Defense environment," said Coast Guard Chief Operations Specialist John Leary. "And the Coast Guard will bring its unique international boarding authority that we have for international activities. Plus, we have more experience manning ships with smaller crews."
Inside the ship, the crew sleeps in three-man staterooms, a major difference from the large communal compartments on most naval ships. The ship can also be configured to accommodate a crew of men and women.
While the Sea Fighter is a test vehicle, elements of it will be used in other future Navy and Coast Guard ships, including the larger Littoral Combat Ship and the Coast Guard's Deepwater concept.

No worries, the DEA, and or Coast guard will use their helicopters to keep up w/ this type of boat runnin drugs or aliens.  Then a quick paint job and it becomes the newest of the governments fleet after it is confiscated.  So the next time your tryin to raft it from Haiti to Miami, and see something comin at your inflatable raft at 80 mph, you may just get a ride to the hold pen in South Beach via the fastest Fed boat available.  Somethin to tell the grand kids about back in Haiti.
