Call Marty at Fountain, he will confirm the numbers, I took it out this past weekend and it ran 110 at 5200 RPMs and we did not have it trimmed out.

It went to Custom Graphics and I should have it back by the first week of April. I am planning on running some smaller diameter props and see what result I get.

Reggie Fountain himself delivered a 42 race hull here for another good friend of mine w/ 900sc's and 6's staggered and that boat ran 105-107. And an identical one was purchaced that same year and it ran the exact same speed. I've been in both boats hundreds of times on fresh and salt water and they DONT run 112-115. Thats 2 identical boats that ran identical speeds.

That article WAS bull**** and it pissed off a few people because they set their boats up to run those speeds. Magazines DO exagerate. What it says on a piece of paper is different than actually making them do it. EVERYBODY in boating exagerates their boats performance, everone knows that.

Cool avitar!

There is nothing that I am mad about. It's just the way it is. Theres no weak valve springs or any little excuses like that, cmon now. Randy at Lake Cumberland knows all 3 guys, and their boats, since were throwin names around. If someone buys a boat because of what speed a magazine or someone trying to make a commision off them says, then they can be sold anything. I know alot of guys that would like to sell them a boat.

"Lets Rock" the 37 Stilletto Outerlimits is on our lake and will blow the doors off all 3 Fountains (yes even the one with 1200 Cobras) and it runs 115 w/900sc's.

cool. All boats run differently. "Lets Rock," won't outrun some of the boats here either. It's power is just set up the closest to the boats in question. You'd have a line goin out of the courthouse if you tried to nail that many false claims.

Take it easy
