I see the top speed on theses boats, but my questions is, how do they accelerate from 30 mph and up? When I went to the Fountain factory to test my new boat, Brian Forhand said that sport boats take awhile to get up to speed. My boat with quad 350 outboards has very strong acceleration.

This is not an anti-Fountain statement, just a fact. It is not fair to compare a 38 Fountain to a 39 Velocity, 39 Hustler... The boat is nowhere near the size. Add a beak to one of those boats and they are 42's. The comparable boat is the 42 Fountain and we all know it. 42 Fountain pleasure version with 700's with a cabin runs in the 108 mph range I believe.

Crazy that a 42' pleasure will only go 88-89mph with staggered 525's. Hard to believe 20mph faster with 700's and 6's or NXT's????
