Great..........I had to work today (Friday). Now if I go boating Saturday or Sunday, I might run the risk of hitting DMAN on his jet ski while practicing for the Catalina ski race. Then I'll go to hell for sure! Sounds like he's going to be using the jet ski for sure now that his trim tabs aren't working. DMAN...............next time don't put 3-IN-1 oil in the reservoir!!!!!!! That stuff only works on sewing machines!

PS: And the D stands for Dont use 3-IN-1

Norty, I think we've been through this before. You don't work, you watch people work.

Each owner has their own preferences. It depends on if you want speed or a nice tight cabin. The Fountain hull is designed for speed and yes it has a beak but that beak has a purpose. Ever stuff a Formula at 70 Mph
and you would appreciate the beak. Fountain cabins however are fairly basic and have minimal headroom. Remove the cabin interior drops close to 700lbs and you have a F2 race boat. I crew with Pier57 2000 APBA World Champions and we have set many World and Kilo records with those hulls, this does equate to a very strong and fast hull design.
