Default What is the fastest 36 Shockwave MPH

Who has the fastest 36 Shock-wave! and what devise are they using to map this.
I have finished my Mach 26 conversion and clutch upgrade, i broke it in with
4 tanks of 30%.Than Dynoed it with the pipe i am running in my Shock! Then
ran it on full rich setting 88 deg on the head, and 120 on the block.
Ran the stock prop, than changed to a 1.870 than changed to a 1.780 the props
made a difference. I have not leaned it out to the dyno setting. I had to get
use to running it, it's my first boat.
The pond i am running on is 1200 ft long X 800 ft wide so i am running out
of space before the motor comes up on the pipe, When it gets warmer in
Cleveland i will run on lake Erie!!in one of the coves, until then I'm stuck
on the pond.
I want to purchase a GPS, or the same tool everybody else uses or always
talk's about, do they make that small of unit? I already
have been using my Eagle tree telemetry, but i want to take the wind speed
variable out of the equation, i make two way runs to take the average!
My two shock-waves ran 36mph average's in stock trim, I converted one to a Hot Rod.
With a blue printed hull blocked flat raised the ridges in the center, shot
it in sikkens then wet sanded it and buffed then hand rubbed it, then apoxyed
the inside the hull, and painted it with airplane spray can white.
then installed My Mach 26, it runs perfect with a clutch, less than 1% slip
on the clutch. Sorry for going on!

just need to now what small GPS every body uses!!
