BTW......... Those were not sterling engines. Reggie told me that he had Troy Dennis put these engines together for him. I do believe that the 2nd boat will have the BIG sterling engines in it tho. Anyway, that's what he said to me.

The boat has the the 1350 Sterling motors that are the spare engines for the Pier 57 Fountain-Scism cat that I bought from David in November.They are allready removed from the boat and will be shipped to Orange Beach soon. Also the run was on fresh water and Reggie ran throttles.He still has a large set of balls.Congrats to Fountain Powerboats,Jeff Harris,Rich,David,Bobby and Billy Moore,and the ohers that made it possible.
