A kilo record held by Reggie Fountain since 2004 was broken earlier this morning on the Pamlico River in North Carolina. A 43 Outerlimits made an average speed of 172.876 mph as reported by Speed On The Water.

The canopied SV 43 offshore raceboat’s two-way record was produced by an average speed of 174.938 mph in its second pass and 170.863 pass in its third pass in the opposite direction. Per APBA kilo-run rules, the runs happened within 15 minutes of one another.
