My 2001 T/S Gun is much closer to the F-2 Cigs that were being raced, then the any of the production Fountains are to their race boats.
I did read your post several times, and I still get the impression that you don't think Cig, Donzi, and Formula are up to the standards of Fountan or OL because they are not going for a speed record.
Again, this is just my opinion.
The Fountain boat that set the record is a 40` Fountain( they cut the swim platform off) But it is a 42` stock hull YES stock.
