David Woods of Pier 57 purchased the Fountain Super V after the '98 season. It was at Lilly Sport Boats to be prepared for the 2001 season in APBA. A rule change brought a new motor configuration to SuperV the supercharged engines were replaced with Super Cat normally aspirated 4 barrel race engines. I crewed the boat from Art's shop for Fred Tull and Joey Gratton.
Fred and Joey set a World Speed Record in Sarasota that year at 114.876 mph.
I am fortunate and proud to have been a part of Davids' team that season.
