How fast will 160 horsepower get you on the water? Will it get you 200mph on water?

For example, if 1,000 horsepower will get you 200mph, how fast will 1,000 horsepower get you on the water. Just use averages and avoid the extremes.

I think 160 Hp should get you over 200 MPH on the salt'

In the standard free fall skydiver position from 10,000 feet, you will fall at approximately 120mph.
How fast would you be going if they dropped you from 10,000 feet into the traps at the five?

Yea but what if they dropped the 160 horses on top of you  rolleyes

I guess one vehicle can do 200 on 160 but another may take 1000... same would go for boats... not all have the same streamlining... watch the cup races sometime.....
Do some research and get back to us in a month or two  cheers

And how fast if you were in a record-breaking streamliner?

Skiers can ski down a mountain at over 150 mph with no propulsion.
So, terminal velocity means what?

Ron, PETA will forgive you, use dead horses, it seems like an ethical use for them  shocked
