Mismatch?? Where does it say "don't run what ya brung?"
Each had brought the boat that would go the fastest. Obviously, OL needs to go back to the drawing board or race more so the boat they bring won't be so heavy and slow.

Is there a video of the "Triple X" run??
never have been a reggie fan but i was there and he kicked butt. i saw mikes boat leave early friday morning to go home they did not come prepaired and reggie did he backed up what he said and mike did not and thats all there is to it
Actually they didn't run 160. They tested some and puked. Then they snuck out of town after breakfast.
The 160 as you say was the GPS Mikey took on his airplane to get the number. As you know, OL never did 160 with official measuring devices. That is why they made a gallant attempt at last years kilo.
I have to say at least he showed up and then talked nice to Reggie re: Fountains new world speed record.
Mikey in Powerboat '04 quote.."someone needs to shut him up"...unquote. That's rather rude isn't it?? Geez, even Mikey's dad shows more professionalism.
Guess what >> Reggies still walkin and talkin. Bring it on
No, Reggies 47 cannot match that. That is why there are no 47's racing out there.Originally Posted by License To Thrill
Botttom Line... Fountain will go faster than OL. Bring the 51 if you think that may work, the 47 sure did not. don't matter to me.
i think hauling trash just said a new 47 would be at key west...Originally Posted by Downtown42
I was with Fiore at Reggies kilo.I helped him change gear ratios in the drives.I helped him put the boat in the water at 4:30 in the morning in the pouring rain.It broke an engine and thats it.He had something and he will have something real soonOriginally Posted by Downtown42
But will he have 177+ ?
No one will come to a gunfight with the old #s they ran.You need 190+ to be in the ballgame now.Reggie has been 183+ with the old record boat.Fiore knows that.Originally Posted by jryan26
