He needed to get there before me - it gives him time to replace all the screws that popped out during the trip.

So you mean you can only operate a Fountain at sunrise and sundown ?
And yes Iīve raced a Fountain not against one.

So true... after one pokerrun friends boat that had been delivered the day before was dropping screws and had a cracked gelcoat....

And a week after this picseries the other 496 died altogether because of a leak in the fuel line.
Did the workers at Fountaind work at any of the Big3 before ?
A 35 ICBM 2007 in question...

so Truee... we Finns do have a legacy of being succesful in Motorsports.... so we drive everything like we stole `em when it comes to having fun.
A Sponsor for our raceteam told me at Brands Hatch this fall ( a Briton) ..the problem is you Finns take everything so damn seriously, that made me think about an edge.
So apparently Fountain should think about where to export ?
(Not Viking country, Itīs Nor-Techs territory)
On the other hand If I want to go fast I throw out everything I donīt need..including the passengers and their seats because when it comes to speed, safety and durability there ainīt no compromises.

Yes on that same day a Baja outlaw broke itīs stringers... the day before I had built a new engine for him and yes they broke it on purpose as they asked me how much can the engine take...
I told them WOT the Whole Weekend and then some.

I Give credit when itīs due truly but Fountain do have more marketing than reputation as we speak IMO..just like the Big3 and look in what condition they are.
Too much bragging IMO.

If this was a legit thread as opposed to a pot stirring winter blues thread then - yeah weight is big but noone will deny that Fountain is known for having a lot of race-bred technology in their hulls that has done a lot for development of the sport.....
