I agree.

What where the weights of the previous 2 boats that where run by both of them ? I know the OL is/was heavier, I'm wondering by how much.

Foul they are both to be romured to be running Sterling power. I think it was 1350's in Bob's 42 GTX. I think Fountains was 1100 Merc in the old record boat.

OK. It's the Shock Wave with BIG Sterlings.

Regardless of all this knit picking both OL & Fountain can run what ever they want. So my dad can beat up your dad. If you don't like it go somewhere and cry about it.

So now it's OL time to step up to the plate.

Congrats to the boys at Fountain! Very impressive for ANY vee to run these speeds.

I don't think you could pay me enough to be driving that boat... someone has a death wish or is just plain numb in the head if you ask me.




Mike and Paul,
Drop the hammer boys!!!
