I smoked many a Fountain in the Pacific when the water was rough in my Cig, so I have to agree with you...

I've smoked a few cigars on Lake Michigan after enjoying a nice run. The best "Lake" in the world. NK

Looks like there are solid 5' waves out there for the next couple of days, if you want to go play!

I have been on the 'lake' for many years and it can get rough!!!

You Fountain guys are funny, have you ever even been in a Cig or a similar boat known for rough water capability. I have owned a T/S Gun and have driven Fountains, and there is no comparison when the water is rough IMO.

The last two poker runs I ran in the ocean Cigs (Guns & Gladiators) and a Scarab finished in the front for the V bottoms. There were some fast Fountains at the run, but for some reason they could not keep up.

That was because of the beak catching the strong head winds that day.
