Great old thread to read! A few of those folks are still here. Sadly, we lost Commanche3six. Gladly we lost Sunkin. Good reading and not one nasty post!

Thanks for the link, I did not find it on my own.

New question, there is a 42 lightning in the classified, did fountain make a "extreme" lightning, or its just added graphics, Google comes up with nothing.
How hard would it be to add closed cooling to 575's?

There was no extreme lightning. 42 was lightning, executioner and poker run. Closed cooling isn't difficult to add. The kit is somewhere around $1500 per engine depending on who/what you buy.

You want a nice 38 ' boat, buy a 42 Fountain.

There was a young man from North Carolina
who loved fast boats and became a designer.
With Brylcream and gold,
he refused to get old,
and his boats just kept getting finer.

The Pamlico river is not very wide
so he'd radar his boats with the outgoing tide,
The speed from his test
was always the best
and the Cig' boys would all say he's lied.

Now Reggie became a total speed freak,
his boats were all fast but the transoms would leak.
The owners gave thanks
for attracting the skanks
but all they wanted was to ride on the beak.

Gives my bow cover a great place to hook onto and keep it from blowing off. I can also park my 42 footer in a 40 foot spot and just let my beak hang out over the boat in front of me. Kinda like a dog sniffing a cute girl's ass.

Everything in life has a purpose. Thank You for pointing this out!
