Just my opinion.
I don't think so, I have yet to buy from the same builder, but Fountain doesn't have anything better than what I have had in the last 3 boats, and aside from a Donzi 38 ZRC the only performance boats I whould own now would be an OL or NT in a V-hull that is.

And we always look like a race team with full equipment, as it is not fun hitting the roll cage with your head after a hard landing.
I think I had one of the smaller engine packages anyway after what I saw on the dock.
I enjoy bring my raceboat to the events. For me it is not a race but a big social event with comraderie like I had in racing.

I also represent PRA sponsor Rio Roses who likes me bringing the boat too.

So I'll keep bringing it and not threaten anyone by it. 80-90 mph for me is just fine. Remember, it's not a race, right?

A special thanks to Larry Goldman who was so gracious to us at the dock helping to get us situated in a nasty crosswind.

Nice Job
