Yellow,
Superboat (John) only makes a 24' & 30'. Both are bad-azz boats. Go to his website and check out his Jan. special on the 30' Y2K... very impressive boat for $50,000 NEW!

Brian - It won't be easy. Just to make sure I've done all I can, my "Farm-X Tested" stickers are on the way. That ought to worth a couple of mph.....

Sweet ride! This would not happen to be John Tomlinson's old boat is it? If not he has something nearly identical he showed me once. Very trick ride. NK

Question for you guys. Dont know how much this will fit but I was just curiose. We are talking about 28 foot boats here. Now, I am wondering if or how a 29 fountain would fit in if at all. Yes, its listed as a 29, but, we all know that there is at least a 1' beak on the front. No disrespect to the fountain owners but it is the truth. So, in reality. It is actually a 28 boat. To include transom platform also. So the question is, does the 28 have to be actual length or manufacturers claimed length. Would the beak on a fountain push it over the limit for this dilemma here. I just wanted to play devil's advocate here. I dont own a fountain and am not making any claims about them. I just know I hear alot about their performance along with the other boats on here. Thank you for your time.

Roll - in answer to your question and no offense to any Fountain Owners, (and I can't speak for the Joker, Saber, etc.), but I would put BIG money that a Batboat would run circles around the Fountain pretty much anywhere. Like I posted above - I've personally seen the Bat boats run where you look over, do a double take and think "how the [email protected]$ is that thing going by so fast!!! And you're in a 40' boat......
