offshore...well right here you are saying insurance rates will go up because of what Fountain did.

dude you really dont get it, and only read what you want... thats exactly right, and when the time comes that a person that has a financed boat cannot use it because they have to abide by the insurance companies policy or risk losing their investment. Obviously you cant even twist a sentence to suit your misguided beliefs......nuff said

I can beat you at wits all day long, want to give up now? I keep getting pm's about how ridiculous you look...

I know alot of marina owners and when a poker run comes anywhere near where they are located a lot of them just yank a brand new boat off the lot and enter it in the poker run so they can advertise thier marina , no registration ,no insurance and they get away with it! I know that marinas have riders on their policies that cover them when they sea trail a boat but i bet if they got in an accident during a poker run they wouldnt have a leg to stand on! Do you think Reggie had the Rio Roses boat properly registerd with his state to run a poker run I know it wasnt because its a race boat and not meant for recreational use. I would consider a poker run recreational use and if the local athorities wanted to push it they proably would have had some pretty heafty fines to pay. So on that note I would be willing to bet that any insurance that they may have had on the boat wasnt for the use that it was being used in. Now what if a boat with a family of 4 accidently came across their path and hit them, Now lets say everyone survived but was criticly injured and hospital bills were stacking up and Reggies insurance company wouldnt pay out because they didnt have the proper insurance policy the family would be screwed and would be in court for years trying to get money from Fountain powerboats inc. now ponder that a moment the next time you go on a poker run and your running wide open next to another boat that has "joe blows marina" plastered on the side of it and ask yourself "does this guy have any insurance in case he hits my boat and wrecks me"!
Good point !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just 1 question - To keep poker runs going, do you think that race boats should be banned from poker runs?

Fountain owns the speed record for a V-hull.

If Nor-Tech, Cig, OL, MTI or Skater ran 155 mph on a poker run, that would be cool.....right?

Since I was in the D&M Motorsports cat I'll say 525s to 1550s is not a fair comparison. But I'll try harder next time.

Yeah, that's the ticket. Let's make rules for different classes at a poker run, especially since it's working out so well for the racers.
