i noticed that too.. but when they do show it they always make sure it's in the same frame as a fountain to make it look like it's trying to pass Bacardi :

Missed the show. Did they show the Stock boats going the wrong way in the beginning and then correcting? Mapei and Hulk made up HUGE ground(water?) after the mistake to run all the others down and win.

It really is a shame the way the shows are produced. I mean if Reggie thinks he is getting his money's worth on these things he is sadly mistaken. By turning it into an infommercial you lose the draw that these shows are all suposed to be about-competition between different boats/drivers/etc. If you lose the natural competitive draw, you lose a whole bunch of viewers that you might otherwise reach. Guys that are hardcore will watch regardless, but someone just flipping through that has some interest will quickly learn that it is similar to the late night offerings by Ron Popeil and keep flipping the remote. It is not an accident that all other forms of motorsports programming highlight the different manufacturers competing and use brand loyalty to gain viewership. It would be refreshing to see a change in the direction of these productions

Must by a very blurry Fountain if Bacardi is in focus!
