Pretty close. Actually taking one of those red ones to the dyno just as soon as I make a trip down there. See what they really do? Might have to keep them after that.

Works for me . Though a Staggered 38 would work even better.

Yeah. The fountain is to small of a boat overall.

For some reason you stick up llike 3' over the windshield.

42 Fountain hands down. Are there better quality boats, sure. Are there better rough water boats, to be argued. However, value to dollar when you compare, speed, ride, comfort and cost the 42 staggered with #6's is really tough to beat. My first choice boat would be a Cig 42x, but could not justify the extra $150K - $200K.

I'll ride in them, I am just not buying one unless it is cheap enough to make a profit.
