Well, as I sit here in my hotel room in Birmingham, AL this thread really gives me better entertainment that what is on TV.

Sharkey, I was great to finally meet you in Destin at Hollis' ORL meeting. It's all in good fun and I was suprised you did not even have a OL t-shirt on...oh wait a minute....it's Cigarette that's into the t-shirt deal...my bad .

Anyway, it's my dream to see the Fountains from SBI (much better prepared boats than the Muscle Fountain) and the Skaters in SBI run together with the OSS OL and Badboy boat. I loved seeing OL finally get a boat out there to race...good for them they did well! Like I said it's just probably a dream.

Unification of Offshore Racing

This is such a recurring theme here and I believe it should continue, to drive our point home.
Racers, organizers, promoters and possible sponsors check in here, I'm sure.
It's what all the fans want and surely it's agreed by now that the fans drive the sport.

I will always have hope.

I have been first hand in both camps[OL and Fountain] and know all the first hand knowledge!!!I am told by both sides to post only what they tell me to post.I am not a cheerleader for OL or Fountain.There is a big rivalry!!I have been a close friend to Joe Sgro who i have raced with and supported since i have met him.He raced for Reggie and now has teamed up with OL for specific reasons.What i am getting at is that what is being posted here on this thread is alot of BS.If you post on this thread, you should know the FACTS of what is true!!!

What speeds are the OSS Super V's running and what speeds are the SBI/APBA Super V's running?

It is not the top speed that they run.It is how they accelerate.A good super vee can run 110 plus top speed.What they look at is how fast can the boat go from 60 to 90.A good boat can do it in 10 to 11 seconds.Your dealing with no power and RPM and the focus is in acceleration with a good top speed and a good turning boat.These boats can run 114 set up for a kilo run, but dont run near that race ready.

Yeah, I would say it's R's show.. Without him, what are you left with? An hour of free time to cut the lawn on Saturday.

As I said in the past, I don't dislike the performance of the boats, nor dislike him as a person, just his practices of getting his class titles...

Read the Rule book. As long as the work is approved and done by the approved sealer of the engines, he is not cheating... So with that, technically he is running legal, but just might have a little more than someone else...Seems fair doesn't it ?
I am familiar with the delamination incident. I am also aware of the class that boats is in etc. old news.
That's ONE incident out of almost two decades of Fountain championships in all different classes. I guess Fountain has had their little hands in every race for almost 20 years? Come on, we all weren't born yesterday.
