Pretty much what we all want to see - real world results. btw it would need to be a 39 against a 42, Fountains beak adds artificial length.

not to mention throwing the 39' Skater V with 525's into this mix, might be some broken hearts of Fountain and OL owners

The Skater V would smoke both the Fountain and the Outerlimits but Peter does not need to get involved in these pissing matches to sell his boats.

Why blame this off on Outerlimits? Did Reggie use the same HP engines that Outerlimits used on their successful run? NO

The 525's have already been done in the kilo last season (race boat), Fountain set the record I thought?

I guess you cold measure the wetted surface on both and I bet there the same .I know my Hustler is the same wetted surface when sitting side by side.

Its still a broken record ,they will not do a equal power to weight test!

I don't think anyone is trying to blame anyone, but, The fountain that ran 177 I believe had 1550 sterlings which is what OL ran last yr at 160 something.

For the same reason Nor-tech doesn't race, to much demand and not enough time. When you have a 2 year wait on boats you don't have time to mess with race boats. Both Nor-Tech and OL have had race boats in the past and they did very well when they raced. Fountain builds more boats in a month than Ol and NT do all year put together.

I am sure if somebody went to them and said build me a race boat and I will never ask for any help from you they would be happy to, but that isn't how it works. If I was going to get into boat racing it would be who is going to help the most and cost me the least.

42 E Legacy w/825 Sterling runs 109 powerboat mag test....

42 GTX w/ 525's... i don't know if they even built one of these w/ 525

35 Lighting w/ 575's runs 103 powerboat mag test...

35 Lighting w/ 525 90+ (fountain website)

38 Lighting w/ 525 88+ (fountain website)

38 Lighting w/ 575 92 powerboat test (ben robertson driving)

42 Lighting w/ 525 85+ (fountain website)
