I don't think I have ever been known to be Politically Correct....

I tend to say what's on my mind.

Some may agree, others may disagree.

But I do try to keep to the facts.

FeverMike,
The lower averages were in a story covering Key West and not an advertisement. Page 98, Hot Boat Feb 2007 edition.

Well maybe Bobbie got it wrong due to wrong info or a misunderstanding. With out knowing the facts you can not blame Fountain on the 44 or 47 foot boat in the report. That is not the 1st time something has been printed wrong in a magazine.

I have been told here on OSO that the boat came from the 47 mold and was cut down.

Notice there is no beak on that boat.

I think Bobbye got it right it is a 44 footer...

And knowing Bobbye, she most likely got a copy of the score sheets at the end of the day.... Are you saying she is wrong on all three averages she printed?

How about these numbers right from the SBI Website:
Race 1:
1 V -15 Panasonic Hard Rock Casino Fountain
99.6
98.1
91.0
89.6
95.7
94.5
90.3
Average speed: 93.78

Question Re: Fountain New Kilo Record by Miami Show!

Quote from the FPB ad in Hot Boat:

".....World Champion in Super Vee Unlimited and garnered first overall, averaging speeds of 150 mph with bursts approaching 170."


By reviewing those results from Key West on the SBI site,
can you tell me where these speeds of 150 to 170 came in?
