No offense taken here... We're hoping the Fountain will run similar #'s to the Check. The 29 is about 1000 lbs heavier but has a stepped hull. The power swap is going to be a sobering amount of work and not going to start until either the Check or 525efi sell. Love the 525efi but 76-78mph in a 29 ain't gonna cut it.

For your viewing enjoyment...the Checkmate @ 103mph last fall.

Nice ride. Look me up on the river or sometime on norris. Down there quite a bit.
