We rigged a 42 Fountain with 1200hp Teague motors, & #5's. No problems after two years of running.

Jesse James,

I think "Shameless" belongs to Rick Lemon, unless there are two of them (and there could be I assume).

Are you thinking of "Shameless" that was at Lake Mead last year? THat one belongs to Rick.
