Want to know what it’s like to go really fast on the open water and hit speeds of over 100mph? MSNBC and Forbes feature a story on riding in a Fountain powerboat on the Pamlico River, in Washington, N.C., home of Fountain headquarters.
This is not your average bass boat or pleasure boat. This is a serious racing machine and deserves respect. In a 2,700 horsepower powerboat you wear a special belt that shuts off the engine if you get thrown overboard, your neck aches from the wind on your helmet, and a piece of floating debris in your path can spell disaster. But if you can handle the power, you can zoom over glassy water in style.
