Of course i am partial, but i have to say the Powerplay 38'. One reason - weight. the 38tg is a close second.

Fountain? Tom in his 32 AT 90mph boat smoked, and I mean smoked a 38 Fountain on the way back from KW in 3-5. The Fountain was flopping all over the place. "Built for speed or comfort"? I say speed.

Reggie's bottoms adhere very closely to the results of many decades of planing hull research. Nothing new, he just applies the theory experimentally, and so he actually gets it right. No surprises there.

Reggie is a good scientist.

Now shut up for a second, and keep reading.

One reason Reggie's boats are so much smoother riding in the rough than the legendary non-pad bottoms like Cig and Apache et al is also well supported by research since the mid 60's, and again proven by Reggie's experimental application of these well published research results.

Oh, I know, blah blah Cig Apache blah blah. If the boats heavier, it runs smoother, but sucks more fuel.

If the boats weigh the same, like in a race class, then Reggie's pad bottom is smoother, and therefore faster. The results don't lie.

Smoothest boat? Heaviest boat -- e.g., Cig.
Smoothest for same weight? Stepped, pad bottom -- e.g. Fountain.
Fastest for same weight? Duh.
pads are for girls with bleeding problems!!!!

last power in the boat was around 1200hp now bumped to around 1400. I heard boat ran 118-120, but again that came up in conversation at KW PR. Awesome machine
here's a pic from key west fresh from the run.

That's the biggest load of horse$hit I've ever read on this site. And, there have been more than a few.

First of all, if Reggie had one scintilla of proprietaty technology in anything he'd ever designed, there would be a long list of patents on it,

and...

Second, since there's not, and if it were any significant technology, every boat manufacturer in the world would copy it.

Actually, that second one has sort of happened. Reggie is partly responsible for resurrecting some early 20th century technology and inspiring many day-cruiser manufacturers to adopt it- steps.

Reggie is a master marketer. I'll give him that much.
