Fast real fast

Just a guess:

WOT 6000 RPM 68 MPH
Cruise 3500 38MPH 4.5 MPG

See attached cant be way off this and I would expect the Mercury to be just a bit better.

i have a frontier 2104 w/ a 200 and was following a buddy with the blackjack w/ a 250 SHO. Obviously i knew he would be faster but I couldn't come close to keeping up with his acceleration the turns. In the straights id run 50mph and he was pulling away easily. He had 4 people i had 3. Another buddy has the 224 with an F300. Running down river in venice i heard he hit low 60s haha. I think the 250 pro xs will be plenty enough to run upper 50s loaded

Upper 50ís I agree, but no where near 68 mph loaded like an average person with that kind of boat will fish... 4 batteries-trolling motor-gear etc.

I know a guy running a 224 with a 250 v rod and loaded to fish and 2 guys he hits 58, should get a little more with the v8 250 Pro XS. Guess ill find out mid August as im having no luck across many forums finding this set up.

Iím guessing you didnít read through the thread started by THT member visco that I posted. He ended up with a V8 250 ProXS on a 224 Blackjack.

Yes I did read that post, back a couple of months ago, and have emailed between visco several times, he hasn't opened his up all the way so has no idea of top end speed.
