No I don't think people base the kilo holder on buying a boat.
Foutain builds 500 boats a year,
Cigarette builds 80 to 90 boats a year,
Skater builds 35 to 40 boats a year,
OL builds 22 to 24 boats a year.
I was saying it would be nice to go and watch all the top Vee's run for the record.

It doesn't necessarily make him or you correct about anything, it just makes his statements more credible. Jc is more of an insider with the manufactures involved than the average boat enthusiast on this site. For all I know you could be the head rigger (with and n instead of and r) at Fountain and your information may be valid. If not your just another guy typing crap on the Internet like me.

It makes no difference what JC does or I do as facts are facts.

Does it make any common sense that Reggie would time his run so he could get a full run and then try and schedule Fiore a run when the train was going to cut his run short?

Do you think Fiore is either stupid or would just let it slide ? Do you think for one minute it wouldn't be challenged and taken up with the sanctioning bodies ? Do you think Reggie would risk it ?
I think all of them are just a bit smarter than that. JMO

BTW: JC seems to be a straight shooter and this is probably the first time I have ever disagreed with anything he has said. This is a forum and we can agree to disagree.

I love how we get dragged into this mess. This thread is about a cigarette going after Reggie's record, right????

You guys will have plenty of time to talk about the OL when it runs, but let's get back to the topic, Cigarette/ Skater Merc 1800's Reggie....

Outerlimits is heading to the show with the new 45, which will gather plenty of attention on it's own, we don't need a speed record for the show.......but give it time and whatever new record get's posted by this hybrid cigarette or reggie, will soon get improved upon by some good ole boys from New England.

I wish everybody a good safe run, and I hope they keep 'em together long enough to go at it again soon.

I don't work fo Outerlimits, but I do Poker Run with them and run boats with them from time to time, so I guess I work for OL part time, for free.

I can't speak about bridges being open or closed, or up river or down river, but I do know that we went to Fountain's Kilo with Bob Russells boat and a new set of RaceCrafter motors, the motors weren't right and we tried to dial them in, and broke 'em, so we went home. Simple as that.

Old story, same answer. The new boat is a factory boat built for one purpose, to go fast. Last boat(s) XXX & "Can You Feel the Heat?" were production boats with full interiors that were poker runned and pleasure cruised, ALOT.

The new boat will and has performed well, but like I said earlier, stick to the Cig for now and let Bennie and Reggie duke it out on their own. We will be around sooner than later.

We all enjoy the pursuit of speed records, I think because it is a "no compromises" thing, unlike real life where all sorts of accommodations must be made. To set a speed record, all other considerations besides safety are secondary to the absolute optimization of power and power delivery. I wish all these guys the best. What does it have to do with buying a boat? Maybe knowing that the manufacturer has the spirit and drive to pursue a record is an important part of the "feel good" that you buy along with the product.

Question: How come V-hull speed records are factory projects, whereas cat speed records are private projects like Callan and Scott?
