150 HP E-tec....  50MPH on the nose GPS with the four blade stainless prop and completely stable.  With the three blade aluminum it was chine walking like crazy and I thought I was going to lose it -- don't want to go there again.

I bet that boat jumps out of the water at hole shot with a four blade prop on your E-tec.

My GX 255 does 64 on the GPS (with 3/4 tank of gas, 4 people and full cooler on board).

2009 glastron gls 195 with volvo penta 5.0 gxi running an enertia 21 pitch prop and smart tabs sx 60's   can run about 66 mph on the speedo but only 58.5 on the gps.  Here is a video of me and my boy taking her out for a top end run ... hope you all enjoy it!!

I have the fastest one.  2001 SX175 with Mercruiser 3.0L, Alpha drive and alum prop.  It hit 68 MPH when I looked at the speedo and then I eased my foot of the gas and let the truck slow up as I was it towing home.  LOL ;D

My 2008 MX 175 with a 4.3GL-a volvo OEM aluminum 23 pitch and about 400# of me, kid and tackle would do like 54 on the speedo and about 52 on the GPS. My new 2011 GT 205 (with no wake tower) will do about 52 on the speedo and about 50 on gps with the exact same prop, engine and weight. I may upgrade to a stainless but probably will run the aluminum anytime I am not absolutely sure of the waters I am running in...stainless is GREAT but can make a prop strike a BIT more complicated.

Mine has only done 50mph (GPS), Given my engine and weight of the boat I would probably expect it to do a little bit more. Does anyone have the same engine/boat combination? Would be interesting to know if there something wrong with my engine. My engine is a Volvo Penta 5.0 GXI (270 HP)

If your 2008 Gt 205 has the 270 Volvo and you are running 50 or so I am betting you have about a 19 pitch on there. Step up to a 21 or 23 and see what happens. Less torque but if you only pull tunes....doesn't matter.

You'll see RPMs drop about 200 or so for each 2 degrees of pitch....so the 23 will run at 4600 where the 21 runs about 4800.
