Reggie measures the new 60' er with the new Fountain tape measure that wraps around the entire hull. They call it the "Fountain big boat tape measure", guaranteed to double the size of any boat on the market and increase speed. He's always bringing new inovations to the performance marine industry!!!!

75', now your getting out of hand, that thing barely measures 64.5 on the new measuring system. You'd still be a little short of the Rough Rider, Maybe a little closer to a Gadiator. Worst part about it is you never be able to drive it, there's no pointer in the front so you know wich way you're going. You'd be driving in circles trying to figure out where the bow (beek) is.......

I saw something very similar fly right over me the other day as I was driving north on 95, just a few miles past Mercury Nevada, at around 1:30 AM!

OK....very cool website and info.....I called them as well because this thing is very interesting.......well made ....but pricey. The one in HAVASU is all aircraft aluminum thats why....next year they will have composite molded ones.....carbon fiber/ kevlar and some other esthers. the price will be half of the aliminum one. With a pair 496 HO's in the 28 HUGH SPEED CAT your looking at 140k for the composite boat. SHe will run at 100 or so with the 496's according to the builder......cuurently built in RUSSIA next year produced in CA. Intersting alternative to whats out there now.
