There is a lot of deep rooted ill feelings amongst the Apache people past and present. All of it very well founded of course. Welcome to the jungle!

For the past two decades Fountain Mercury has dominated the sport! Once again this past year Team Fountain Mercury dominated both the SBI and APBA offshore racing circuits capturing World and National Championships in the most competitive V-bottom classes; Superboat Vee Unlimited and Superboat Vee Limited. As if that wasn’t enough, we also set World Speed Records in SBI Superboat Vee Unlimited, SBI Superboat Vee Limited, APBA Super Vee in addition to holding the SBI and APBA/UIM World’s Fastest Vee Bottom Record at a blistering 171.883 MPH.


Many of our competitors make false claims about winning World Championships and setting World Speed Records. So to avoid any question as to whose the fastest - we prove our superiority by winning World Championships and setting World Speed Records in front of the major sanctioning bodies.

As long as these races are inshore, Fountaintain with it's light weight and fast bottom will do great. If Offshore racing ever goes back to Open Ocean Racing such as Miami to Bimini and back, then there won't be enough dumpsters available to put all the fountains in.

My comment earlier, was aimed at the production boats for pleasure use. I thought the race boats were built for Reggie by Skater?

Don't make me laugh. I guess the offshore races now are all run in flat smooth water?
8 ft seas are 8 ft seas a mile out or 70 miles out. Apaches are slow, overweight and have old technology bottoms. They are has beens living off their their 80's haydays.

When was the last time Apache won anything other than bs bar talk?

Nope, you get the same hulls on the pleasure boats that they use on their race boats.

A fountain running in 8 ft seas! Not here in NJ. They stay in the small water and polish their inshore trophies and Reggies gold chains.

Remember Fountain actually RACES and transfers the race technology to their pleasure boats so they stay together.

My old man used to be the Captain of a Nimitz class carrier years back and I think Apache used the same suppliers. Why? They both weighed the same!
