I guess I am the only one who saw the hull when they pulled it out in Sarasota I didn't look like they were going to be doing any more speed runs.

One of two choices.... build it to go fast or build it to last....

With my limited funds I want the ones that last!

As far as speed runs, I doubt they would do a speed run down in Fountain land in May.... too hot outside...

If it were to ever happen, fall or early spring would be my guess.

The engines are fine now, It is the trannys that can't handle the power. Al is working on the trans now too handle the extra power. He wants them in his 48'

Thumbs up

Someone sets up a race heading south (IN THE OCEAN) like the old days and I assure you Fountain will be there in fine representation. I would enter as fast as applications were avaialble.

It wins cause there's a loose cannon behind the sticks! You could probably race with a piece of plywood and a 30hp Evinrude...
