Just curious... It's coming up on 2 years since the. Farm Boat was going to put Outerlimits in its place and show the world what a real powerboat could do.. Any updates?

Some moonshiner stole the engine cover and put it on his pickup truck.

My guess is it is no longer a priority at Iconic.

I think you're correct. What good is the speed record in a one off unique boat do in a center console world ?

so they aren't going to run the company into the ground chasing a record and turning Iconic fountain into ironic fountain ?

All that marketing all over the earth about the big run did not produce any new boat sales so hence why its not even on the bucket list anymore, also not to keep throwing dead money into it. That money will never be recoup from the past, the present or future. Basically all that hype did nothing and did not produce one boat sale.. That old saying win on Sunday sell on Monday does not apply currently like it did way in the past. . Ford vs Ferrari or in this case Fountain vs Outerlimits. End of story

^^^ the boat had to "win" in order to sell on Monday - it was a flop overall in terms of what was promised leading up to the run so why would a person spend 10x on a new boat that was basically no better than the boat they are currently running and probably paid for.

Granted, the Fountain following is solid but with the rebirth, people would also expect innovation in performance and design. When you look at the finesse that was thrown at the engine hatch, no amount of "new" boat smell could get past that - sleek and Sexy was never ever a comment that came out.

Definitely not being a title breaker and the O/B performance (CC and sport) market is impacting sales as that is the principal demand in this era

Wasn't that particular boat supposed to be racing by now?
