Default 42' Fountain VS 54" Scarab Shootout Video

Greg dragged/duked it out against a Scarab over the weekend and took this awesome video.

That's how the big boys play here on Lake Champlain!!!

That was way to close to be racing side by side ,also you all didnt have on lifelines and the Scarab driver was riding to the engine hatch.

GL what speed was it
