Fountain1fan your HISTORY reference might be correct. That was a case of race V's against race Cats and congrats to Fountain on that. I don't think the question is how fast Reggies new boat is but more about how and where they decided to market it. There is no question they have current world Kilo record. The video composed ironically by Creative Television proves what point to targeted buyers? A race boat can beat open top poker run boats? I doubt many "new" to boating buyers walking around a boat show will buy a Fountain just because a video says they are cat killers.

There was a race in Puerto Rico that weekend I think and there were some race cats there running in the rough stuff like Reggie wanted at the end of his infomercial. Why did'nt Fountain take this boat there and show up with another one like it with the top cut off set up for poker run use in Jacksonville? If the two boats would have "killed the cats" then this claim would have some ground to stand on. Build an open top version of the boat and run against other open top boats.

With any luck for all of us maybe we will get to see all the V's run in Catalina and settle this battle for the time being. Catalina once a year for the title. What a concept.

Loto Shootout==== Never Seen Reggie's Name Under "top Gun Award". Once Again, We Are Not Debating His Ability To Deliver Very Fast V-bottoms But He Brought The Knife To The Gun Fight And Said He Is Faster Than The Universe Of Boats So My Money Is Still On Dave Callan At The Shootout Or The Sleeper Of A New Boat With Bud Select So Let's Stop Bickering And Put Our Money On The Table. It Will Be Fun To Watch. Please Show Up Reggie.

No doubt. Fountain please show up to Catalina and Lotto. Run your race boat against other race boats and see what it can do.

Thanks to Reggie is looks like we don't need to have SVL - SCL, SV - SC classes anymore. All the cats and V's can run together since they're equal again...
