Buddy of mine has a Ranger Z119. With a 225 merc he gets an honest GPS 71MPH with an 8" jackplate and 25p prop. Thats with two persons, medium load of gear, 1/2 tanks of fuel and a 24v trolling motor(3 batteries total onboard). His is set up to still give him a decent hole shot and will stay up at lower planing speeds(rough water travel). Due to circumstances beyond my control(someone took out my old Ranger on the highway) I am shopping for a slightly used Ranger. Really like the storage of the 520 and 521 over his 519. My question for actual Ranger owners is what REAL speeds are you getting from your 520's and 521's with a 250 on the back? Not really a speed demon but still want a new boat to run at least 70. Thanks for the honest input. 361V

What? It's a known fact you catch more fish when you're going over 70mph in your boat.

Not as fast as my Alpha 211. Sorry, couldn't help myself, but in all honesty a few MPH's doesn't catch more. I used to own an old 373 V with a 200 HP Johnson GT (over the rated HP for boat) that would run in the low 70's. Some drunk ran me off the Hwy and I rolled it and a Suburban. Talk about a bad day!

I have an '06 z21 w/ Yamaha 250 Hpdi and recently saw 69mph on GPS. That was with full tank of gas and all my gear. Could get In the 70's if I unloaded all the [censored] that I think I need.
