Default I'm doing everything that "doesn't work"

That's right! "Arnesons don't work on a Fountain", so I'm having them installed this month. "LS engines won't push a boat that big", so I'm building a couple to put in it. Geez, I hope everyone is wrong.

Here are the stats. The hull is a '98 that was formerly powered by triple 525SC's and Bravo 1's. With labed 29 Hydros it ran 90 on GPS. The new power is a line of LS motors that I'm developing. Currently the entry level setup is testing well, so now it's time to test it in the real world. If everything goes right I hope that I can drag it out to a few poker runs and maybe even the shootout.

Here she is getting ready to get some glass work.

Who are the know it all's that say that... There are more self proclaimed expert's with ZERO actual EXPERIENCE that talk so much crap it's ridiculous.

Disregard those that dissuade and concentrate on what works. A good boat is a good boat, nothing from Arneson will change that. Turbo Charged Small Block's are even better. Those should put a thrill in the bilge.
