Back4More, WRONG, Reggie does not buy FOUNTAIN stock everyother day or so, as an insider he is required to file with the S.E.C. everytime he buys or sells Fountain stock. Reggies last previous purchase was in July as noted below:

heard a rumor: fountain is on a c.o.d. basis with mercury? my comments on beaks and platforms is more to do with how it's allowed manufacturers to raise prices. when that 25 becomes 27+ i will bet the price went with it.

Saber,

I am not putting any boats down, All the boats I listed I hold in very high regard. I am not sure how you came to that conclusion??? Your remark of "my boats a real 28 foot, care to race in rough water" Please help me out, what is a real 28'???? So any boat with a swim platform is not a real boat?? Tell me how you really feel

Default From where I'm sitting-

Win (race) on Sunday, sell (boats) on monday...
and advertize the crap out of your accomplishments.
And see if you can work as hard at the game as Reggie.

If a beak, swim platform or any other device
will make the boat go FASTER,
Gimme two of each...
three or more if they'll fit.

And the best reason for running short courses
would be it's easier on equipment.
AND the riding crew.

will,
28 foot of hull in the water , platform does run in the water so it does not affect hulls ride. if my boat had a bow pulpet 4 foot long my boat would be 32 foot, but would it handle any different because of it?

Don't get me wrong about Apache...my next boat is leaning toward the new generation 41 by Warrior Powerboats.
I am also a fan of Fountain, but curious why you would want to change makes?

Saber28, So all 28' of your hull sits in the water????? I doubt it?? I really don't care how it is measured, All the boats I mentioned are very nice and fast.

Oh by the way would a Bow pulpet 4' long change the ride, YES it would, it changes the center of gravity on the boat, thus your sweet spot and either increases or decreases running surface, and drag.

Oh and by the way if you do want to race some time I am up for it just watch what you wish for

I'm done

How many people in this forum are registered professional racers, or have been at one time? I am, and the FACT is, fountain builds the fastest vee bottom out there. cleaveland 2001 was one snotty race, with ****ty conditions at best. who won factory 2? fountain did, a 35 to be exact. we all know that factory 1 and 2 are the real proving grounds for builders. Anyone who argues that is simply kidding them selves. I would like nothing more than to get into a factory 2 or svlt fountain. The only reason that i don't is because i am not the majority revenue provider to my team, and i will simply race what i am bale to with my team.
Cold facts are just that, FACTS.
FACT= APBA F-2 kilo 36+ belongs to a 38 fountain.
FACT= APBA F-2 kilo 35 and under belongs to a 35 fountain.
FACT= Fountains are still winning at the pro-series level, where it is always a challenge. (F2-57 Harwick concrete)
I am not a fountain cheerleader, as i am not partial to reggie, but the fact is he builds the fastest vee bottom in offshore. there are many great boat builders out there, with cig and formula definitly in the top five, but as far as overall perfromance, fountain is #1. period.

You are absolutly correct, but I believe VELOCITY was fastest in F-1 (APBA). Is that correct?

I would chalange any one on this site to get the tape mesure out and se how many feet of there boat is in the water even when sitin still at the dock. Then it dont mater what kind of a step if any or beack/pulpit you got!
