That's a nice looking AT. Looks to be a 2001 or so, and probably an 82-85 mph boat.

B4M, we're talking 38 foot boats, so you'd have to include the 42 Fountain

I have not been on a 37 but I had a friend you owned a AT 25 and I was not impressed with the finish on the boat. Comparing a 37 AT to a Top Gun is a bit of a stretch. When Team Virgin was racing a Top Gun in F2 nobody came close when it was rough water.

Maybe - but did that have more to due with the fact that it was the experience and effort of Team Virgin, or with the hull on the boat? And I don't recall anyone running a 37 AVH AT back then anyhow, so it's all just speculation...

Actually I think in the rougher races the Virgin boat had better times than some of the Super V's. I have ridden with both Todd and Tres and they are both very good but I think it had a lot to do with the hull!
This topic came up a few years ago when Radio Active and another 37 were being built with 675's. Funny, I think both of the original owners sold there AT's.
