My point is since the "Cat Killer" thread evry Fountain butt kisser has been saying "run what you brung" at the Kilo and we will see who's fastest.
It doesn't seem they were telling the "whole truth" about the event now. That, or Reggie decided to "improve" the rules after the "Cat Killer" fiasco........

I don't care whos the fastest boat,I just like speed and boats.
No prob Rush, you may be the one that said "run what you brung", but a lot of others said it in different words when calling out the "pleasure" cats.
I really wasn't singling anyone out, just the Fountain cheerleaders which you certainly don't seem to be.
I have to agree with you about the cheerleaders, a lot of them make the rest of us look bad.
At first glance that seems like a lot of money, and not very fair.
But I can only imagine what expenses Reggie incurrs to make this happen, from support, permits, safety boats, divers, helocopters, etc and so on.
I think it is great that a manufacture like himself loves the sport enough to make something happen like this for all of us to enjoy.
We were at the 2001 show and had a wonderful time at Reggie's expense and I don't even own a Fountain. He put on one heck of a good time!
Reggie is a hell of a guy and this sport / hobby could use a lot more like him.
Like him or hate him, "You have to respect him".
Thanks Reggie, we'll see you in Washington.

Ok.... so I might be a little bit partial ------------
Go get'em Speed....or JT! (and everyone have a safe ride)
We're go-fast boaters.... What do you expect. The sail boaters have been saying that about all of us for years!Originally Posted by rush
