Default Anyone in the Detroit area know this boat?

Owner just started working for us in Holland, MI (was working for us on that side of the state). 47 Fountain SC with twin 600 hp yanmars (they used to be about 900 hp I guess, running about 40 psi boost!!). #7 drives???

So maybe we'll be seeing this boat on Lake Michigan this summer???

So it's not the same one then, I can't remember is In the Mood a Fountain also. His brother owns a Hydroplane, it took first place on the race on the Detroit River this summer, I believe it's named Pontiac Coil, after his company. I don't think he is much for boating he did not even attend the race

What's the owners name of the boat in the picture, if he ran it on Lake St Clair I don't recall seeing it, but then we spent a lot of time on your side of the state. If he did not frequent Jack's then we missed him

You should make friends, I am sure he will need an experienced guide Think of the nice ride it would be across the lake to Diversy.
I am bored, Ian is on his ski trip in CO, he called here earlier when I was out and just left a message for me to call back, unfortunately I lost the number! oh well
Are you still going to Chicago, wish I was.
