thats your choice. 47 Fountain anyday in bad conditions. And really this thread is getting beat to death. Cat or V its personal preference....I was just brought up with the knowledge that cats dont like [email protected]#?

I think BELIEF would be more appropriate than knowledge. I have yet to meet any V owners that went to a cat and would want to go back. And they are all going ALOT faster in the cat.

I own 2 42' Fountain's one race and one lighting, plus a 42" MTI race boat. They each have things that make them fun to drive. As far as the best I can't pick one over the other, maybe another year of testing them will help

Sounds like a fun choice. I have also had two 42' fountains, and loved both of them. I am still a fountain fan, but I much prefer the MTI over the fountains.

I dont comment usually on any types of threads as such....Whether it be a Cat or V, I personally would love to own one of each like Team Taboo. We are all very fortunate to be somehow linked to this great sport. I have a Nortech 4300 Yanmar/Arneson package, not fast by everyone's else's standards on this thread, but I still like to attend PR's just like you all. It's the commaraderie that brings us all together. There will always be testosterone, and that's part of the fun, just enjoy what you have, Hope to meet some of you on these great PR's. Jeff
