Default Fountain Does 156.9 MPH

Reggie Fountain and Jeff Harris just did a one way pass at 156.9 MPH . The new Kilo is now set at 153 MPH.
Reggie says there is more to be had.

So it only take a RACE BOAT to be as fast as an Outerlimits. Wow, I am amazed.

It's not a record, just a certified speed. It's a long way from the 170 that was said to be the speed Reggie was hoping for. Anybody want to bet OL goes 10 mph faster.

Impressive. I am more impressed with the Fiore's. They do it in a boat that can be tied up after going 150 and enjoyed. Not a stripped down "shell" with motors and a steering wheel.

Thats cookin in a vee!

No, I am ragging on them. Great boat, but Outerlimits has shown its worth in the kilo record IN A PLEASURE BOAT. If we want to do apples to apples, put a full cabin, full interior in the fountain.

Hyper the OL didn't have a cabin but it was an open boat. The new 47 that will be the record holder is a full canopy boat.

Congrats. Why does everybody have to say something negative about it? I say good for Fountain and good for Outerlimits if/when they break it.

That's pretty fast.

What hp was Reggie running this time? What did OL run last time? What are they running this time around? Just wondering how much more hp OL is putting in it's boat.
