Default 38 Fountain speeds?

What are they getting with staggered 525's? Have they made any with 700's if so what numbers?

Someone at Jammin on the James said that the 38 Fountain brought to the run with 700's ran about 115mph. It did 111mph with 5 adult males on board.

Decades of Shock and Awe on the race course have come down to this: a dominating legacy slickly packaged as the 38 Lightning, an ultra-performance boat that has won numerous world and national championships.

Powerboat Magazine named it the 2007 Offshore Boat of the Year! Now—believe it or not—not only battle tested, but newly improved.

Start with Reggie Fountain’s legendary pad keel, notched transom, and Positive Lift hull. Add staggered engines to move the center of gravity down toward the keel where it does the most good.

Power it with twin Mercury 525s through Bravo I XR drives with Short Sport Masters and ITS gimbals and hit 96+ mph. Choose 700s with NXT1 gimbals and No. 6 uppers and lowers and you have a rocket sled exceeding 114 mph.
Remember Fountain hulls are extremely efficient – this means less drag and incredible savings at the pump!

If your looking for the latest technology at the best value, look no further—Fountain is the only choice

A friends boat is a 2005 38 Lightning with Staggered 525's and Bravo XR's, no ITS or Sportmaster. He has hit 91 gps very lightly loaded. I have been on it, full fuel, 4 men, coolers, gear etc and it will go 85 no problem.
