Old video, and probably a repost, but pretty cool history. Lots of footage of Parker.

Hopefully it keeps you all entertained in these weird times.

I watched that a couple weeks ago, awesome video!

Me too! Love the Offshore boats. The Dragboat races at Crown Point during ThunderBoats/BayFair on Misson Bay would run a Drag Class for the Offshores. Starts were highly amusing. Fun times grunting for the Event. Got in lots of trouble from the Administrangulation for my Students working the Event. They loved it!

Watching the 38 Fountain smoke everybody in Factory 2 in the 90’s made me a fan of the boat. A friend who raced a lot of different v bottoms drove the boat for a season said it was the best handling v bottom he ever raced and told us how much help they got from the factory which made me a fan of the brand.

Great video. Some of it is a little over stated as they brought a full on race boat to a poker run and bragged about beating all the open cockpit pleasure boats. Still a dam fast v hull though. I love fountains, I just wish the would update some of their styling like the dash and throttles etc.

For some reason I'd always figured Reggie was just a gold chain wearing, flamboyant " Cal Worthington" boat builder salesman. Despite being around back in the day and following offshore, marathon and drag boat racing, I'd overlooked his early boat racing accomplishments. I found the video extremely enlightening and truly enjoyed it. 👍 👍

Love The Fountains, friends 42 is the smothest ride around here, cuts waves like nothing! Im tempted to look for a 29 fever when time comes for an upgrade

The new 47 looks just amazing
