We still love you

Being 6'6' is a big issue in a beak

So OK, a ringer tuned, staggered nontheless, 33 ft boat runs 100+ on what is at least 1100 HP, shortie drives (how's it come over?) and 5K props...

this is earth-shattering??
1st of all its only 1080 hp...and its only 32ft...lol

I am the same height....I know for sure I do not fit in a 35 Ex but I have not been behind the helm of a 35 Lighting. I did fit but very tight behind my 29 Helm. Although now with my prosthetic leg I dought I'd fit anymore. I also do not fit in a Cigarette 36 Gladiator or 38 Donzi.

It's a 35 ft.....How do I know? Cause Reggie said so.......How can you possibly question a man of Reggie's integrity? (see Cat Killer thread)

If you don't stop, he's gonna back the screws out of the rub-rail on the beak and the platform a few turns and introduce the new "36 ft Fountain, Special Edition"

So there !!!!

Bottom line here guys is the boat is friggin' fast ! 100+ out of any 525 boat is awesome, 33' 35' whatever... Fountain should be commended for continually raising the bar.

BTW, I'm not a Fountain owner, but I do respect their boats.

Ha! Glad to hear it Nefarious! We've ventured over to the dark side now to provide the same service levels to another niche crowd, specifically Fountain customers in the northeast. We are finally going to cross over our home site so you can see both the Fountain's and the Malibu's on smoothwatersports.com, but for the time being you can check out fountainnortheast.com. Been lurking a long time but we've been learning.

Peter.

So are there two new 35' Fountains with 525's running 103 mph? One with Bravo XR's and one with Arnesons?

Still waiting for an answer from someone other than Rik of Arneson industries.
The boat that Scott Shogren referred to was the only 35 at the meeting, and it sure didn't have Arneson's. If you want to get up into the Express Cruiser line or the 52 Fish boat....that's different story. And in reference to other statements, a 35' at triple digits in questionable water....the driver better have a head on his shoulders if he's not experienced. Naturally, Scott can provide the best first hand information and voice of experience.

I believe you are reading something into Rik's statement, I believe he was just saying that times have changed, it's not the 80's any,longer a 35 Fountain will go over 100 with 525's and a boat with Arnesons will work.

By the way you misquoted him, this is what he said

"If you havenít noticed, itís 2006í soon to be 2007í. A 35í Fountain with 525ís runs 103 and Arneson Surface Drives do work."

If you notice he said Arneson Surface drives do work, not what you said he posted which is that Arneson Surface drives do the work. Two completely different statements, didn't see where he said the Fountain had Arnesons on it.
