Actually that test was on a 20XDC, not an XD. The test was done with two people, three batteries, a motor guide troller, the livewells empty, and a full tank of gas(about 30 gallons). The boat had a 12 inch Rapid Jack., 1.62 Sportmaster lower unit, and was run around 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 inches above the pad. That is the information that I have read about the test, some of it may be off a little, you know how the net can be.
My set-up is quite different. I have a 10 inch Detweiler Hydraulic plate and a Minn Kota Pro 80 Troller (Very Heavy). I run a 28 Bravo 1 with one inch vent holes to fish with. It will consistently run 88-90 loaded to fish with two people and has a great hole shot. I have ran a 30 Bravo 1 that had one and a quarter inch vent holes and the holeshot was almost the same but it ran about 3 miles an hour faster. I just haven't tried to find me one to buy as I have been very happy with the 28 Bravo so far.
