they should make it manditory to do so!!! I am not bashing Fountian they are building a great product and alot of'em!! I just feel that it's getting away from the fun of it all. A purpose built boat SPEED SPEED and nothing else. I don't know, I just wonder where it's all going to. no freeboard/cabin just go as fast as you can and then what?? and go fast

I brought this up two pages ago, and to illustrate just why the good times will be over soon...

got no bites on the subject matter, just Fountain the best, Reggie is awesome, bla, bla, bla... and a bunch of defensive BS

Do you really think at this point in his life he could care less if his contibution causes us ave. guys to get crushed out of the hobby/sport by speed, and only the richest can afford to do this at all?

NO. I'm sure he could give a sh!t less...

Reggie is the CEO of a public company that builds go-fast boats. To show a profit for his stockholders he has to sell boats period. To sell boats hes got to make them faster than the last one you owned. You have to pay the insurance not him. Somebody will always write the insurance if you have enough $$$. The bottom line is all about $$$ its what makes the world go around.

honestly, in terms of an all-around usable, functional, and comfortable sport/perf boat that means absolutely nothing to me.

Isn't there some story about SBI and Reggie not allowing Outerlimits to compete? That seems biased, if it's true.

Ok I agree that most people including myself lack the experience to operate a boat over 100 mph.And I also feel that with few exceptions, like out in the ocean with no one around 100 mph should be on a closed course.But before we all blame Reggie there are cats out there stock out of the box that will run way more and In my opinion a V hull is more stable
Also at least 80% of boating deaths would have been avoided if the occupants had live vests on.Somehow it needs to become the norm to wear a vest and kill switches.And yes I wear both all the time
