Be careful for what you wish for.

Original Post at 1:47PM Monday for a Thursday Noon run????

I would love to have an extended invitation.....not two days notice. All I have is two motors but I am a Center Console......do I still qualify?????

Or are you guys setting another "World Record"

Lee, Fountain would change the rules if you showed up with that. He would would probably cry and bring out a 9000 hp "cat killer".

lol....lol....they said Center Console. Maybe they would dispute the fact that I didn't have 3 motors.....just two

MarylandMark, I'm not sure what to say. It's a 1993 old school Talon 25 Carrier Center Console built by Robert Wilkens at Talon Marine in Sarasota, FL. with pair of 1998 300 HP Pro Max motors spinning 15x32 Mercury Cleavers (for this sort of thing), 101 on GPS is all I 've got, but I've never seen a Fountain CC come close to catching me or running with me for that matter. I even have rod holders and a bimini top!


I feel another undisputed FOUNTAIN WORLD RECORD COMING ON !!!!!

Just my .02 but I think rod holders would look great on "CatKiller"
