Default Fountain 24 cs

Looking for Fountain 24cs owners to discuss specifics of this boat and their experiences. I am the owner of a 96 with a 548CID build in progress.

There's a guy up here on Cayuga Lake with a 24CS with a blown big block. He supposedly runs 90 something with it.

I've driven a couple of the ones we sold with 502's in them and they were a handfull at top end - mid 70's. I think you'll find your ballast tank quite handy with what you're planning on dropping in. Sneak up on it slowly.
