Funny you say this, a new style staggered 35 Fountain with the 525's tied next to us in Chicago (us being a 42 Fountain, a 35 Fountain, and a couple others) and he said he had only gotten his to just over 90 mph with his set up. Not that it would not do it, just tough to get it there!!!

There is a staggeed 35 in Portsmouth Va that actually ran 105....Portsmouth is not that far Wahington NC and he spent alot of time at the factory with props and tweaking...He said that 105 was with really excellent conditions but he could hit 103 routinely

It's all Good....
Im just quoting what I read in PB mag...Personally a set up like this sucks..My boat is set up for all around..I like being able to get up on plane quickly and have a decent pull in the mid-range..Im at top end maybe once a year...

I agree Jeff, our 38 will roll over at 1800rpm and be on plane , from there on it will pull as hard as I push the sticks but most of the time it's at 35-4000 rpm ; thats pretty fast in a fountain you know !!

The boat can get to and maintain 90 regardless of fuel and crew. I hit the rev-limit @ about 91..not solid ..just on and off.
Anyone running faster with stock ?


The Biotch did run 94 GPS last spring with the 30" 5 blade Precisions from Brett @ BBlades. Runs 90-91 on non-lab Bravos in a good chop. Would be glad to share the info with you, let me know.

What are you running for props on yours?
