This Fountain is doing a VERY nice job in some SERIOUS water!!!

I don't give Fountain props often but I do when I see something like this

Nice shots. 4 OB out back, gotta love it. I'll bet that's a handful to throttle.

I've been on this boat going out of Gov Cut in Miami and it's awesome. I have a triple engine 275 Verado version of this boat. It really handles rough water very very well.

The best part of the kingfish guys is that they dont pull the throttles back in the air........ Bubba says "that there is waht dem rev limitrs are fer".

A quad 275 Verado Fountain 38TE (10'6" beam!) will run 80-82. A quad 2 stroke Merc 300xs will run 85-88mph. The Hooter boat pictured had quad Merc 250xs on it when I ran it and with 3/4 tank of fuel (about 325 gallons) and 4 people we did 82mph.

My boat has triple 275 Verado's and will run 73mph and cruise at 50-55 easy.

You have to remeber that this boat has a 10'6" beam and with some fuel on board weights around 12,000lbs.
