Those "better" prepared boats can just as well come to an OSS race. You know, show em how it's done... I think the interview with Reggie and Mike Fiore said it best... Reggie want's guys to come to his and Alweiss house for dinner and Fiore doesn't want to go to their house for dinner because he doesn't like they way they cook their food...

To say one is better than the other sounds condesending..

That's not right Frank.

Mike did get the invite last year, showed up and then they locked the door...

I don't blame him for not going back.

Mike made the effort, now let's see if the Fountain team will give him the same courtesy and try running against him elsewhere....

I was referring directly to the OSO interview, I know what happened last year and don't blame him either.

The Fiore family has had 30 + years to make their mark in Offshore powerboats, and they have in the pleasure boat market (and Poker-Run segment), and in racing too (on occasion). When it comes to racing in Super V, and Super V light (or similiar competive classes) for the past 10 years against Fountain what's the deal? Enough BS, Reggie Fountain has not been Outerlimits, nor Hustler's obstacle for heads-up racing, neither Hustler nor Outerlimits has won consistently against Fountain in these classes, and Outerlimits (OL) has been in business from what 1995 or 1994 (how much more time does OL need?) ? Michale Fiore makes a great boat, and if I made enough money to buy one of his boats, no question I would buy OL, but if I want to go racing and win CONSISTENTLY, Fountain is it (maybe now Skater, but not OL). Bull**** ain't' nothing, Fountain's winning record record speaks for itself. (if anyone can get OL to winning consistently it will be J. Sgro, so maybe finally OL will be the winner you suggest that they have been, and are currently)

TS, are you getting an OL once the Checkmate sells? With all the OL selling (defending, cheering, building-up you do for OL on OSO....ect), I would expect an OL for you in the near future. Which OL model do you have your eye on?

As OL states anytime things go wrong, it's a criminal investigation

At least they had an average speed of over 100mph and had competition in their class...

Unlike the 1 unseaworthy boat with the delamainated bottom that averaged what? 5mph and not complete any laps against no other boats for a World Title .....

What do you call that ??? Oh yeah......... Marketing !!!

Allweiss! Mike A is not involved in offshore racing anymore and is not part of SBI/APBA.
