Most of the time that's correct, but Fountain had a lightning at the NYC boat show with Merc 1075's costing over 700K

Bob and Larry Peto both deserve mention here for sure.

Ask some of the builders you mentioned above , they will tell you who he is and what he knows . As far as offshore builder of the year awards , I could not tell you . I know he builds alot of motors for the offshore ski race guys on the left coast. Call him up, the guy is very knowledgable.

PS I dont do donuts .

I believe your plates are on a Volkswagon down in El Salvador........

After all, there are ads all over for KEPP with Keith's picture on them. What are people suppose to think? Not everyone has the good fortune of having a personal relationship with Mr Eickert and knowing the inside scoop.

There's absolutly no doubt Keith Eickert is a great engine builder. There is however a great deal of confusion amongst consumers about where Mr Eickert works. Under the circumstances, I think it's understandable and not particularly worthy of a tongue lashing.
I agree

How much would you like?!?! ..........
I agree that there are a small handfull of very talented engine builders in this industry. Sterling Performance, Phaff, Teague, and Keith Eickert which I have been fortunate to become great friends with are in the tops not to mention a few other up and coming names! Keep up the great work guys!! I think we need a engine build off. Dyno and then 200 miles in open water shoot out!
Best Regards,
