It´s my friends boat.

In rough water (the boat is new for him seens last week)... Weight ratio is very good, very good reputation on fountain 42 hull, and as you can see on the pic engines close to each other, around 5 tons. Topspeed is little over 75 knots and a march speed at 60-65 is no problem.

Must be a nice boat in rough?

What´s the link for Around Britain race?

It's going to be a great event. Last time it was run was 1984 I think. Quite a few RIBs taking part and some big impressive hard boats. The Fountain will be in good company.

Entrance fees are pretty high - about £10,000 for the bigger boats - ouch!!!

Fabio Buzzi is taking part - he won it last time..........
