Frank come on we know you won't lift first!!!!
I've driven in boats with Scott, and I know he's in for the win !!!

But, hey, it's not a race, we're just strutting our stuff.

Those numbers are incredible. If you had more room to run and weren't hitting the bottom ; ) I wonder how much more the boat has in it!

This 38 Fountain will be at the Chicago Poker Run on July 21st and 22nd. I just might be the driver of it for the weekend. So, if anyone wants to stop by and check it out, on friday we'll be giving "demo" rides. Reggie will be there, along with a few of his new toys, I'm sure he'd be glad to take anyone interested in it for a "test" ride.

I get the impression that Fountain is getting older and bolder.


Now 115mph rocks...what was that montly again with 10% down?

Jesus, you really need that much prop on a light weight fountain? I think thats alot of over kill on the back dont you? I would think the top end would be much better with 4 blades than 6 and about 1/3 the price to boot.
Sounds like these engines are going to be fantastic in the northern states, down here in florida that is uninsurable.

Jay, with 4 bladers, it ran like around 107-108, with 5 bladers about 111-112, the 6 bladers lets it run 115 plus. Don't know the price, but you're gonna pay for that new Merc 700 S/C with the new mini VI type drive.
I think the engine and drive, is what's makin all the speed.
