[B]Maybe the "cheated" factor comes down to Reggie's advertisement that went something like the best value per foot per top speed. The value decreases in the dollar per foot calculation if you go by actually length. Truth in advertisement!

I think its more along the lines of MPH per dollar!

This is all (Enron) math to me!


USA
2+2=4
CANADA
2+2=4
JAPAN
2+2=4
EVEN FRANCE
2+2=4
(ENRON)
2+2=20 = $$

I think it comes down to how heavy the boat not really the length.

it's the one others compare to??????? hardly, maybe cig. or apache or skater, but certainly NOT fountain.

they are on the better end of production boats , but not in the same league as most custom built boats, sorry

Actually I have a new 36' Spectre on order as we speak. The boat will have arneson drives hung off the back approx 4 feet. Do I have a 36' or a 40' boat being built. Myco says its going to be over 40' plus the tounge length.
