As far as I know, my little 35 Fountain is all good...just looks like a bomb went off below deck! Crap all over the place!

I wasn't wearing a shirt (but I WAS wearing a lanyard and a vest), and the spot on my lower back that comes in contact with the bolster is literally rubbed raw...looks like turf-burn!

Last year a Cig blew a hole in the hull and had to be yanked out quick.

On Friday I was out in a 38 Gun (Kool-Aid Man) and he ripped the front bolster in half!! Thanks to DeWalt and some heavier screws, he was in business again soon!
The 38 gun would not have been this guy down below would it have? I told him when I took the pic, "sorry Brian, but you are on OSO!!!!)
You sure did rip it up Mike, can not believe that some of the boats were able to run as hard as they did. The Baja 25 was running balls out having a heck of a good time, probably until he woke up the next day!!!!!! Great fun, and you guys did a great job, must of been the safety coordinator with the little wrench during the meeting......

If your boat is solid, in good shape, and drive it based on water conditions you should not have a problem in a 42 Fountain, lots of smaller boats had no trouble. Something tells me the emailer might not know all the details. Plus if you look at the other threads it sounds like everyone had a good time and plans on going back.

Heck after reading OSO I would be more afraid on boating on LOTO from all the cruiser wakes swamping boats. If you sign up for ANY poker run you are not guaranteed water or weather conditions, Lake Erie, Lake MI, The Atlantic Ocean from NY to FL could all change from one day to the next. Plus any poker run might be a wash out because of rain. You can't really make any decisions on what poker run to sign up for based on the conditions from the year before.

I've run your boat in some pretty serious water here in NJ, I wouldn't worry about it. It'll slam if you're under 60 or so but once you get on top it rides nice!
