I agree that it is a major accomplishment.

I just wish he would tell us how it was done.

I admit that the Madoff post was stupid.

Sorry.

You Fountain guys sure are loyal to the brand!

All of these numbers are great, but people trying to beat around the bush as far as what power etc they have get's old....

Just tell us all straight up what the deal is.

Did you guys even bother to read the thread? Roger posted this on page 2. Not trying to be a dick but you're calling the guy out and he's already posted the info.

I saw 114.00 with two people on the boat and 240 gallons of fuel all against the rev limiter. I will say that the limiters are now set at 5800. So 117.00 against the limiters and now 5800, you do the math. No wrench has been turned on the engines.
Great video Roger. Boat looks like its dialed in perfectly. Amazing speed on a mostly stock v-bottom.
