Ya Most of those Hulls were V drives You are correct a few were set up for Jets very many!
No one ever got one to go real fast to my knowledge, I always wanted to try, when I was still playing with Boats.
When I say real fast I mean in excess of 100mph more like the 8 sec class.
I knew a guy who had put one together with a 500+ cube BB chevy with good heads 14:71 Blower injected whole 9 yards but still never got it much over 80 mph.

Going Fast in the water isn't easy theirs a whole lot more to it than just making big power.
