They must not have been informed either, that Sir Reginald was showing up to race...

You can't have a race if no one else knows about it.



Regiinald must be getting weak in his old age if this is how he fabricates publicity stunts.

Seriously... other than safety stuff, what is the difference between Rio and Speed? Speed have a full cabin and crapper? corian countertops?

driver was the old man Bob Nordskog.....In a FOUNTAIN !

i think don won one or two as well.... i could be wrong....

You think a cat could run faster in 8-10 footers
for 6 hours ???? I think power for power
with todays technology I'd still rather be in a
V under those conditions.

Hello Gentlemen. Your right Reggie is probably laughing at this big media monster he started. But, the funny thing is I just sold my boat to make room for a newer faster one. And with all this B.S. he (Reggie) started it'll save me the trip that my dealer was taken me on to see the factory. There's no way in hell I'll own a beak. Also think about the what he's trying to sell you. A cat is way more effiecent than a v-hull (I'm still going to buy a v-hull more than likely). On a striaght up race Reg would get his wig handed to him. Now I'd pay to see that.

No way. The 2 of them were lined up, and BOTH boats went to the sticks. Was it fair? maybe maybe not. Probably should have started at 70 or so so that Fountain wasn't all the way up on her steps, and Speed was starting to get enough air.

BUT that part of the video doesn't have any missing frames. Speed went for it with Rio, and got crushed. If Speed is so much fasterthan Fountain, youwould have seen her come up to Rio but she never did.

If he wasn't prepared he shouldn't have tried.
Just watch the video.
