With twin 900's I would think that a 42 fountain would run at least 125 mph...

116 mph as stated earlier on a good day, you need alot more motor to get to 125 mph.

Disclaimer: I do not have first hand observation of this boat running 116, but based on what other 42' Fountain owners have stated previously, a 42' Fountain with Merc 900 s/c motors, the 112mph-116mph range is realistic. Still a very nice package, very fast.

That one has a little extra LOVE if it is the one I think it is, and if it is I've been 119 on GPS in it.

That's not the one... But the one you're referring to IS for sale in the classifieds.
