Fountain Powerboats will be attempting to set a new V-Bottom Kilo record this year! Originally slated to take place between February 2-4, the company has recently announced that it has postponed the attempt in order to conduct more safety tests to ensure the safety of it’s team members.

Veteran offshore racers Ben Robinson Jr. will be throttling the v-bottom on the attempt and Mike Seebold will be getting behind the wheel. The team will get 2 passes to attempt setting the new record after Fountain set the previous record of 171.88 mph in 2004 with their iconic 42 footer.

We will keep you updated as Fountain continues to undergo testing.
