    Doesn't it count that reggie is running a boat that weighs less and is actually a shorter boat when you talk about running surface. On flat water a smaller and lighter boat will always run faster with the same power.

    I agree. The only way to compare Fountain with these boats is to use the 42. My buddy has a 42 Fountain w/HP 500's and it runs in the low 80's.

    Its pretty funny how fountains are always the boats people compare to when you are talking about speed. All of these boats mentioned above are fast. It is almost impossible to say one boat is the fastest boat period. Gas, coolers, and everything else that gets packed in the boats for a weekend will slow it down from day to day. Since I get the pleasure of riding in an extremely fast 35 twin step fountain w/big power my vote is for fountain. I would be happy to own any of the above boats but still think fountain makes the fastest V hull for conditions on the Potomac River.

    are we talking racing and racers???
    AUDACITY for the real answer to Cape Cod the Donzi is a great boat but the only reason it had fast times the SVL2 boat I Had about 300 hundred gallons of water in my boat and still all most won check out the first two lap time not even close ,but that the way it should be, But Mike and Doug did a great job in F2 You can not come pair speeds . Looking foward to seeing your boat keep the Donzi boat, ruling F2.

    sonicdriver makes sence. i dought you will ever see a ol with stock 500 hp ,so there cant be a campairson. a lot of your f2 boats the motors have been modified some,so you dont know you has done what,hustler i dont think has up dated it bottom since 97-98,there pushing the 377 cant compare a race boat that at race weight 7500lbs? to a boat with a cabin . look at a 36 gladitor you cant even go up front in it. to a certian point bottom design then power to weigh ratio just like race cars. no 2 boat weigh the same.i think most of the f2 foutains are the 35,s?

    Hell with a fountain you dont need all that extra length in the water because they handle and ride like there on rails. and since they didnt need all that running surface to achieve performance and handling they decided to put there lenght into styling, so they could have a boat that doesnt look like everyone else's.

    Oh yea i forgot the main reason Fountains look different is so you would know what was going by you

    Oops....I stumbled in here by accident...... "Fastest Vee bottom period"...... I thought this was a Midol commercial.

    Obviously...if you really wanted to go fast.... you'd buy a Skater............... Cat.
