Default Something New In our Barn

Went into our boat barn today and there right in front of my eyes is this Big ass boat! Its longer than a whores dream, I would say about 42ft and has the name Fountian on the sides. One great looking ride!!do you by any chance own this great looking boat 35 Lightning? If you dont I bet you wish you did. Anyway,Congrats to whoever.Thought for a minute it might be Paytons but see his is still there!!Mark,Maybe next time the tooth fairy will leave you one !!Best of luck to whoever!!

Les, I'm trying to remember what mine looks like, it's been so long since I've been up there. I do remember it's almost out of gas. Maybe the tooth fairy at least filled my tanks. Ya think?

Is that yours 42 Dennis?

I finally found one!
Brought her home from Port Huron monday eve.
1996 42 Lightning Staggered HP500s
Engines have some work done to them
by Tylor Crockett and dyno out at 580hp.
Thought I'd put her in the barn with all the "offshore"
machinery just to see how it feels......



'Want to go out on the big lake soon,,,
Dennis

Guess I'll have to change my handle to 42lightning

Candyman,

I have the Saturday off but people are traveling from
Michigan to look at my 35 Lightning which is for sale.
Looks like I can't make it this time.
When are you going to have the Fountain run?

I was thinking another OSO get together would be fun. Run what you have. When do you plan to splash?

Dennis, congrats!! I've got to see that thing. We hope to get out on the boat Saturday. We'll have a bunch of family with us , so no COPS run.
