47 with twin 850s/6s if I have the means to boat nationwide in this scenario.

42 lightning with 700s/6s if I'm stuck on Lake Maurepas and doing a few poker runs a year.

You realize we are discussing FOUNTAINS, right?

The 32' was already notorious for sinking. Add some 1075's and 6's and you have a rocket alright. The VERTICAL kind.

42 Lightning with 1075's and sixes. Loved Eddie L.'s yellow gel "Fountain of North Texas" 42 that was set-up this way. Had 130 something on the tattle tale.

Being that I think outside the box (on here at least) I'd take the 42' Lightning with a pair of Arneson ASD8's and Sterling 1050's

47 lightning...

But 1) Much simpler, 2) Smaller diesel engines for a 50 kt cruise, 60 kt top end, 3) Lighter lay-up enabled by the slower speed.

Twin staggered diesels to ASD drives.

It seems there should be no problem building the boat to a 7000 lbs. weight budget due to the reduced top end, and all the stuff left out.

Basically get rid of everything below deck. Smooth finish the interior surface of the laminate under deck. Awlgrip it. Then just a nice comfy berth, an enclosed head with shower. No carpet, useless "galley", headliner, sofas, ...

Two bolsters and a bench in the cockpit, with some open space between. No carpet, no padding, just smooth fiberglass and non-skid floors.

Smooth finished and awlgrip engine room. Two staggered engines, no generator.

Simple, fast (as fast as 100 miles offshore in the Pacific ocean allows), economical enough to use, reliable enough to use all the time.
