I know a stock 42 Fountain runs 138 with out that light carbon million plus doller layup that OL uses. I bet apples to apples its Fountain hands down. If the beak spankls them that bad on the race course, if you build a million dollar 42 up against an OL every single day of the week the beak will be faster guarenteed!!!

Eddie Young is going to run Bruce Gibsons Skater at the Shootout. May see the fourties with it.

A good V-bottom shootout is needed. There are always fast cats, but some stupid fast v bottom action would be really cool to see!

gotta put one in for the Fountains.....Doc Janssen's 42PR ran 142 w/ 1075s....... there is a 42 in PA somewhere with 1350 sterlings that ran 150.....it was used as a pace boat when they used to have races at the Fountain plant....I'll see if I can dig up a pic
