That is one sick Fountain - impressive! Do all boats weigh the same? Just curious about the minimum weight rules???

They use a power to weight ratio of 1hp per 3.5 kg and have a minimum weight of 4250 kg post race. Boat weight is verified by mandatory weighting of at least the top 4 finishing boats after each race.

Ballast tanks are not allowed. Only fixed weights.

A rounded transom has been done before by another company.

Nice try putting down Fountain AGAIN Sharkey but that transom does not resemble the Fountain at all.

It's kinda funny to watch these threads!

First an OL guy says it's a good racing season with some good competitors....

Then the next OL guy just points out that weight was added to the boat. In my assessment wasn't making an excuse, just pointing out what they knew as facts.

Then the fun begins.....

I could care less cause I don't own either boat but it is quite funny to watch! So what happens if OL wins the next race? Or Donzi or Skater?
