Ive seen a brand new 42 Fountain lose 4 MPH due to keeping it on a flat bunk lift.Even pulled the motors out and redynoed them thinking the motors were down on power.Turned out the bottom developed a 5/8 of an inch hook from not being supported right.

Also....remember to trim the drives up before storage so that the hull doesn't spin out or barrel roll during the winter.
