I got a great view of Bills (Team Taboo's) Fountain in Key West . I thought it was going to land on my head in turn 2. Great Team, Unbelievable machine ! Jo

How about twin 800hp Seatechs in a 42' Sonic? And, yes it is for sale. I was told that the boat was built to go 100. I don't think it made it though. Doesn't matter, I still have wood.

The 42 Fountain taboo has is also for sale!! One hell of a boat!
The acceleration is unreal!!
I believe the 42 Sonic never came close to its desired speed!!

you can also use Turbines which can use diesel/biodiesel or almost any other fuel.

Sonic was a 46 and ran 98 that's pretty close.
