At least this guy isn't all over the net bragging about his boat.

It's a sleeper for sure. Wish I had his HP.

Looks like Lake Cumberland Marine may have bought some outdrives from TD. They have a 2004 Fountain 35 Lightning listed in the classified with 525's and ALPHA ONE XR outdrives. Probably runs 10 -14 mph faster than even Reggie could make it run, now with those ALPHA's on it.

After reinventing the wheel, and the alpha... TD has now put his vast knowledge and understanding of hydrodynamics to work and created the worlds most technologically advanced hull design to showcase his surface piercing alpha. Clearly by the footage you can see that it's great in the rough stuff and while the "budget" 22 stingray ran 87ish with a 600+hp race engine, this new top secret hull design only needs 800 to achieve triple nitwits...
check it out!

I agree....in the video it seems like the hull reached a point then started to get loose and you cna hear the driver lay off the throttle...
