Lovin' the passion here.
Sharkey raises a good point. As the market turns ( or turns not ) toward poker run boats, even though it's not a "race", it would be nice to see Fountain show up at the big U.S. poker runs with some serious poker run hardware. Right now, among the V-hull manufacturers, Outerlimits boats probably are generating the most "buzz" at the big poker run events.
Maybe THAT is what the Fiore's are going for. If so, maybe we can understand why OL seems to take the "fastest V-hull" challenge so seriously.
BTW. . . I talked with Mike Fiore for a while at the Clevelander ( it was LATE ) during the Miami Show. . . real straight shooter, real nice guy. We talked about the "challenge" a bit. He said that their speed run at Cumberland had been postponed, but will certainly happen. Not necessarily at Cumberland, but when they think they can make a serious charge at the record. . . . really a nice guy - and I was wearing a Fountain jacket.
