I never said it was impossible, I said it would take a lot of hp to do it. The normal factory ordered engine packages in that boat would not get it there, but there are plenty of aftermarket engines that would, as well as supercharging the existing ones ($25 to 30k for the pair easily).

I haven't bothered, nor cared to dig into OSO about this topic but I am sure all the pertinent details about the boat are on there.
