Speed records are fine, but it won't translate into the boat you buy as a customer when you buy a fountain. They are a production boat and Cigs are not.
your right, the nsx is head and shoulders above the ferrari.
actually the NSX was originally designed as a ferrari, but they didnt build it because it wasnt exotic enough so they sold the design to acura.

when will they put turbines in these things??? where are the AMF boys with this?
ill take a 47 gtx, t55's, and bpm drives.

Yes, Ferrari's are faster.

The race technology is a direct transfer when you buy a boat! Fountain uses the same molds on their race boats and their sports boats.

I like that !! Heres to all the Reggie lovin Cig haters out there who kept saying crap about Cig having Skater build their boat!This also made me think of something to. Remember back in the day Reggie raced a Skater for a few years. And I also remember Reggie trying to get into the Cat game and not being able to build one himself but he tried to hire MTI to build them for him as a Fountain/Scism cat I think that deal fell through after just a couple boats and now look where MTI is in this business.

And where is Fountain today?

I am sure Cigarette could build their own race hull as well, it's probably an economic issue. Remember companies are in business to make a profit.

Bigdady lets set the record straight reggie build the cats for Randy while randy shops were being built. Reggie only built 4 or 5 boats during that time frame. Reggie's factory space was not large enough for the large cats.

If I read the article in Powerboat mag correct, Cig stated they used Douglas Marine to lay up the deck of the boat not the hull, due to there expertise in canopy's.
