That new fountain will never see big power, cause mercury doesn't make anything bigger. I don't expect mercury to finance a boat that doesn't have their motors in it.

Either way, the mark is 149.7, in a usable boat that the general public can actually buy.

The new boat is a four seat sit down and it is not a canopy. I have a drawing and I will try to post it so everybody can have a look. The boat is to be done for the Miami show. The deck is about done and it will go on a 42 hull. The target is 160 MPH +. As everybody knows, Reggie will not rest until the record is back in Washington,NC.

I almost forgot. It will have a cabin.

Records are meant to be broken. So im sure that OL record will be broken sometime in the future, but by who, we will just have to wait and see.

Speed records dont mean anything to me. There is no
criteria. How do you compare two completly different
size boats,with completely different power? Put two
boats the same length and the same power, then
compare.
