It ws 42mph not 45. Also the man said the fishboat was "the hit of the show". Those are his words not mine. So I would presume that there are two conversations going on concerning the same article.........but "I" did read the whole article. Sorry if you got confused.

And the fine print reads.-
Be advised that performance figures are merely an estimate of what you can expect based on our factory testing program.The above listed speeds are verified by radar with one test driver and LESS than 10 Gals. fuel. Boat speeds and range can vary depending on weight,fuel load,number of passengers,air temp,altitude,humidity,barometric pressure,water conditions,wind,enging tuning,horsepower variance from engine to engine,propellers, and numerous other factors beyond our control.

No the Donzi is compared to the 38LX Fountain. This new Fountain is different than that.

I wonder if what they did to the new 35 what would happen if they did that to the 38 & 42? Just think if ya put Whipples on that 35 and picked up 20 more MPH.That would beat alot of cats.
Rob, that's why Fountain is the Cat Killa!!!!

I found an old boating magazine the other day that had a test on a 2001 35, top speed with 500EFI's was 86. That quite an improvement.
