Default Ohio Steel/Never Satisfied

Does anyone on the board know this boat personally or remember any of its history. I am curious if it has been structurally sound it entire life. I have a 42 pleasure now. If it is a good boat that is a sweet deal if it is as advertised.

My friend Tim owns this boat and it it very structually sound. It does have some stress cracks here and there, but it is a solid boat. It runs really good in the rough water, especially when you use the ballast tank.

If it was the Ohio Steel Fountain V Bottom of John Reban's then I know some history of the boat. This boat set a few speed records for Fountain with some big power in it and one many of races. From owner John Reban it was sold to Pat Patel painted purple/pink (that was later nicknamed "Barney" by Pat) and named In Contempt. Driven by Pat Patel and throttled by Doug Lewis of Professional Marine in Brick, NJ. Not to sure of where it went after Pat sold it. Hope that helps.

It was the former race boat known as Ohio Steel, after retirement it was named NADA Chance, then Gotta Chance, and now Tim has renamed it "Never Satisfied".

The boat is a 1991 Fountain Lighting 42'. It has Paul Pfaff 572ci Merlin blocks with 10:71 BDS blowers, super chillers and dominator carbs, putting out 900 hp each! This power is being put through a pair of Huber transmissions hooked up to Mercury Racing #6's. At the business end, a couple of four blade cleavers.

This boat raced in the early 90's and was driven by none other than Reggie Fountain himself and John Rebhan. In 1992 Reggie and John captured the the OPT National and World Championships for Open V bottom in this boat.

And at one time held the record for the fastest V-bottom at over 123 mph. Fountain also won the APBA World Championship in manufacturer Super-Vee. With a few exceptions, such as new paint, upholstery and carbon fiber dash, the boat is still set up in it's race configurations with the three stand up bolsters and ballast tank. Top speed is just over 90mph on gps.

I took a ride in that boat a couple years back. Stinson was on the sticks and Treadwell was driving. I just stood there and hung on. It rode well and handled the swells of the Pacific nicely. It had different power and vinyl for the name and graphics. So, can't comment on it's cosmetic condition nor the engines. However, the hull seemed to be in very good condition and seemed to have been not only well maintained, but also updated with attention to detail.
