1998 Fountain/Skater 42 Super V Eikert SC Engines #6
This is the famous Muscle 42 Super V, campaigned through the late 90’s into 2000’s.
The boat was laminated by Skater and rigged by Fountain, with a Skater HIN.
The boat was re-fit to an open cockpit boat in 2006, changing the seating from 2 to 5 people, and is now configured for poker-runs or open cockpit racing applications.
The engines are Eikert engines de-tuned from the Super Cat specifications, with #6 dry-sump drives fitted with vent tubes, making 750hp.
The boat just received new fuel tanks, replacing the "compartment style" tanks originally built into the boat by Skater when the boat was raced.
It runs a solid 115-120 with the ride you expect from Fountain in the current configuration, and rests on a tri-axle MYCO trailer with boxes.
Vessel Inspection 06/13/2020
Repairs were performed on the bottom, primarily on the starboard side beneath the fuel tank compartment. The repair performed looks and sounds solid and proper. My only comment is that I would have preferred a cleaner "fairing" of the finish gel coat around the repair, but I see if as essentially insignificant, and if desired could easily be sanded/buffed to better finish.
There is stress on the deck on each side at the forward side of the engine compartment toward the outside edge of the deck surface. This is highly common on race-boats, and is typically not structural in any way.
The engine compartment looks great, and the only issue observed is that the fuel lines from the new tank are pulled into the compartment and not connected to the fuel pumps. It does look like one of the fuel pumps is not mounted to the bracket, and it is impossible to tell if the pumps work. Then again, if they have been sitting with fuel for an extended period, it is very likely that they should be replaced anyhow.
The gas shocks work properly on the hatches.
The drives and transom assemblies look great. The sheathing covering the port side trim indicator cable is chafed where it passes through the swim platform, but otherwise the cable looks functional. Likely yu would want to replace both cables anyhow.
The is evidence of a previous repair on the starboard side of the boat, between the deck and the chine just above the step. That was from when the boat was the "Nick Carter Racing" boat, but was repaired years ago.
The trailer looks good as well.
Embroider can easily be addressed on the head-rests to change the logo.
The replacement fuel tank is a 179 gallon, aluminum.
