39 MTI 575sci's and XR's 120 MPH
42 Fountain 575sci's and XR's 88-90 MPH
42 Fountain 1350 Sterlings 126 MPH
42 MTI 1150 Sterlings 156 MPH
All first hand comparisons. I think there is a pattern.
My wife wont ride in a 100+ MPH Fountain again after running 150 in an MTI.

Again it would be nice to see a head to head comparison, but maybe that would take the fun out of discussion
Does it matter if they are older boats if they were the same year model? I have seen your video. The 42 above was not a 42 PR.
I dont think it gets any better than the 39 Bravo MTI vs. 42 Bravo Fountain. I don't care what power you have in a bravo Fountain, its not going to run 120 MPH any day of the week.
So how fast is a Skater 388 with standard Merc 1075's?
