They just sit with the other bottom dwellers thinking of their wins thirty years ago with a sticker that still proclaims "world champions"...

Well we are entitled to our opinions now aren't we?
I'll remember that one, Hey, your boat may perform better, but I purchased a high performance boat because of the difference in the rigging!

Why the new name, the way you post your obviously someone who has hung around here for a while. Lonely at the Fountain Factory again? Just go cheer for those Skater bottom designed Fountain just like the new Cigarettes...

You could also tell us what 38 foot long 42 Fountain your running and where you are from, there's enough people here swinging others dicks around. Don't forget to post some pics of your Enzo while you're at it...

When we'll need an expert in depreciation we'll call you.

You know about this overall length thing....Fountain swim platforms and the dry ride beak are standard items.
So your assuming a 38' Cig will ride as good as a 42' Fountain?
Thats not a fair comparision.

I have to hear this from you too now?
She lets me know from time to time when the registration renewal comes in the mail with her name on it.

I own neither a 38 or a 42.
Oh, I am in Virginia.

Sounds like you're the expert, I'm not into that stuff.

"The Man" meaning the man who spoke the words. And, who knows, you may see a BR edition Top Gun!

Anyway, all Reggie did was take Howard Pipkorn's Hydrostream design (of which Reggie raced many) and stretch it to 42 feet.

I think that 171 mph in a V-bottom is one of the top two or three highlights of modern high perf boating. I've done few crazy things in boats, but NOTHING compared to that. I take my hat off to Reggie and Ben.

And what kind of rig do you own again?

People here with worthwhile opinions are known beyond the anonymity of their computer. I have met and boated with hundreds of them and they all know that I'm an idiot... They deserve to call me so and often do over some pops.

So until you show what you got except theories developed from reading Powerboat in your orthodontist's bathroom, all you are is a knob.




Oh forgot...
