totalmp,
Very nice! I like the new CRT wheel. Do you like the positioning of the buttons on the new wheel as opposed to the old one?

105-110?? "It's faster now"??? HOLD ON!! I'm not so sure about that?? Very nice Fountain,very fast v-bottom, BUT...... I was in the 36Spectre that was running with the Fountain, 2-38 Hustler slingshots, and (43Nor-Tech) "X-cess wetness" from Jeagers to Mandeville,running with the causeway and from my vantage point and 2 GPS's on board the fountain ran out of wind between 95-100.Very fast v-bottom,awesome looking boat.....but definitely nowhere near 105-110mph,muchless any faster.......

That was the first hard run with the new boat, we are still dialing it in. The engines were very rich. Come find us in a few weeks, the boat will absolutely be well over 105. Your boat ran great. Besides, this is our cabin cruiser, if you want to go fast, get on side of Cyclone. Congrats for your run at False river.

Thanks for the compliment, but as far as Cyclone is concerned......From what I hear, It is pretty difficult for any of the cats in our area to get a side by side chance with him.I don't know about anybody else here, but all I have seen out of Cyclone was it parked at Jeager's, pics in Extreme Boats Magazine, and a pic of a 164MPH GPS on OSO. I'm starting to wonder if the pic of the GPS was taken by Copeland in one of his Skaters at 3/4 throttle.
At the False River Radar Run there were only two of us there. "Hang Em Out To Dry"-36 Spectre and "Hot Pursuit"-30 Shadow Cat. We had plenty of room for more entries in the cat class, but when you enter these events, there is one thing that is inevitable........ the truth about the speed of your boat is revealed........... There are quite a few cats in our area. We were just shocked to see only two enter this event.

You could've pulled on side when they were making 150 MPH passes in front of Jaeger's Saturday. Or just give us a call and we'll set it up. We will be in Lake Havasu for two weeks, and will be back after the 4th. I'm sure we'll see you out there.
We'll be more than happy to take you for a ride. Bring your GPS.

Steve
