I Love my Top Gun, and the "worls fastest V bottom" title does nothing for me as far as choosing a boat. I would pick a Cig, Donzi ZR, or Formula before I bought a Fountain. That is just my opinion, but I am not a big Fountain fan. The Fountain that Reggie is using to set these records is not even close to the boat you are going to buy from him.Originally posted by Fever Mike
Jeff Harris who was with Reggie is no slouch at running a boat either.
You guys are bantering over nothing. Who has the fastest V has been going on for a lot longer than most of us have been boating...well maybe not for T2X!
Fountain has awesome marketing and will probably win the war of getting the consumer to remember Fountain as the fastest. That is what successful marketing is all about.
Personally, I love the competition and wait to see who is going to one up the next. reminds me of back in the early to mid 90's of the Fountain vs. Scarab kilo runs. BTW those were all sanctioned by APBA not just some guy in the boat looking at a GPS!
So right now in my book Fountain holds the record again with the Worlds fastest V because there run was sanctioned by SBI.
Also look at it this way...between Outerlimits and Fountain there has not been another V bottom to even come close! Where is Cigarette, Donzi, Apache, Formula and the host of others that build a 38' plus v bottom? Come on guys step up! How fast are you?
Outerlimits on the other hand is in a different league in my opinion. If you purchase a boat from them it will be much closer to the boat they are using to set records. They are a company that builds "custom" boats. They are not a production boat like Foutain.
I was going to stay out of this, but when you start throwing down Quality boats such as Cig, Donzi, and Formula because they are not trying to set speed records, I think you need a reality check.
If I was going to buy a boat for flat out speed, I would go back to a cat. Just my.02.
