Here's the Outer Limits boat. It's a beauty. The fit and finish and the paint were as good as their pleasure boats.

As for Reggie the man...it would be difficult to find a more generous, sincere man. Please show me ANY man who has accomplished ANYTHING without a dream or an ego. To even mention appearance is a cheap, unnecessary shot at a man who has made major contributions to our way of boating and who is willing to pony up the big bucks to help perpetuate it.
Well Said... most of the criticism of Reggie the man comes from jealousy & the courage of the internet... not ever having to face thier adversary so to speak.... why some people have to try to demean others to feel good about themselves I will never understand.... Most of the people who take cheap personal shots at Reggie are the same ones that would stand in line for his autograph....

I'm in for handing out a whoopin! We also have to teach these kids how to have a "proper" party on Duvall St. Remember, the kind the police couldn't even shut down because of the crowds
Nah, you're too old to party any more. Best just pay the bills and let someone younger, more handsome and "cool" take over those responsibilities!!

I am sure that all manufacturers would put up their fair share, as long as the politcs normally associated with SBI don't follow their usual protocall.

Equal money should translate to equal competion.

We'll find out if everybody is subject to the same set of rules, than nobody minds kicking in sponsorship money.

Andrew,

OL never used any radar guns at any time.The XXX boat ran over 161 several times on GPS, with several wittnesses form NPRA and Powerboat magazine. The boat that we brought to Fountain did break two motors that morning while testing, and we went home. Nobody is disputing that fact. We are not living in the past here, we are forecasting the future.

Reggie may have looked fine, but Thursday morning his SVU boat was heading up US-1 with a bottom full of shrink wrap tape. It had De-Laminated approximately 15 - 18 feet of gelcoat from the bottom of the boat. Apparently Key West is a bit rougher than the Pamlico River.

I don't see how breaking a motor and going home makes you a cheater, it just makes for bad luck. If you were on your facts you would have noticed that the boat that broke in N.C. wasn't the XXX boat, but another boat that was built for the Kilo called "Can You Feel The Heat?" 2 different boats FACT! Ask any of the 20 or more people that Mike has taken for Rides in XXX and they will deffinately back up the speed claim.

Either way, you have your opinion and we have ours, let's settle this on the race course next season.

Photos from Miami last month at a trade show:

Anyone recognize this hull?

Yes, it is the molds I built for the Bullet 130...


Ok, Reggie made another mistake. Didn't hear of any duct tape stories after Dania race. Was that water smooth or don't you know?

Your molds look good by the way. Cord is doing a 18' cat boat. Still in the oven.

The Super V and Super Cat classes were designed to be compettitive and keep costs to a reasonable level so more people could afford to race. That's great but I still like to see the Unlimited boats run. There's just something about all the extra hp, speed and the noise. I'm a hp junkie.
