12 knots diff with same engine...

Fountain 35 and Baja 342

simular length, simular weight, both have the 420hp mercrusier x 2.

And the diff is 12 knots.



The fountain have a stepped hull with planing pad and the baja have a "standard" hull.

How much is the hull and the engine installations (look at pics). 2 First is Baja.

all pics is from the manufactures homepages.

A quick look on Google tells me that the 496 Magnum HO gives 420 hp, but the 525 EFI gives 525 hp . . .

Yes, but the pics is from the manufactures homepages. Both boats have the 496 Magnum HO with 420hp. I donīt have pics on my friends engines and hulls....

The baja did 62-63knots with 2 x 420 and after installation of superchargers the hp was around 2 x 550hp and with long time testing with propellers it did 69-70knots.
The Fountain did 73-75knots with 2 x 420hp direct out of box (factory).

Ah, OK. You said look at the pics, so I did!

You might get a more informed answer on www.boatmad.com where they know a bit more about fast boats.

One boat has staggered engines the other does not. Big difference in performance

Limey Linda find the word i couldnt find. The pic on boats was most for people to se what kind of boat it was, engine pic was because i couldnt find the word staggered engines.

I will try boatmad, just curious how much staggered engines do and how much the stepped hull does.

More over the guys on www.screamandfly.com are far more capable of telling you all the difference you are after Joakim.

The guys on BM are more for phantom and ring thingies

I think it comes from cutting bikes around. I hate chrome but give me polished ally or stainless and I'm dribbling
