Not unlike modern day stock car racing, professional offshore powerboat racing evolved from a colorful history. From high-speed skiffs smuggling Canadian booze across the Detroit River to big horsepower vee-hulls purpose-built to outrun the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, it was all about who was the fastest.

Today, offshore powerboat racing is an organized professional motorsport boasting million-dollar machines capable of speeds faster than 200 mph. Much of the modern performance technology employed in these machines can trace its lineage to Fountain.
