The Fountains' cabin wasn't complete, so sand was used as ballast.

Yup! Another great way to win a World Championship Title.

I will say this again, I don't dislike the boats, I just don't like that kind of BS and then have them go and brag and advertise that they won the World Championship in Super Vee Unlimited.
Ive heard two sides to this story. One: that Fountain wont let them race, 2) Its not true, I believe the top story on the home page is that OL just finally finished a true raceboat, because of customer orders and requirements?? Ive talked to you on here before on here Sharkey, and know your very knowledgeable, wasnt Firewater a Fountain? I think your right you should definately have to race someone to really win a world title, but if no one else races and they have alredy proven them-selfs, then the other side of the spectrum is whats the point, lets just go grab a beer and watch the races.

OL built a bad ass boat (XXX) for one reason, to beat Reggies fastest V bottom, so where have they been??? Its different on a course as we all know. And we all know OLs cant turn to even save Mike Fiores life, at least from what Ive heard and thier history

Just my .02 cents

that's just another nail in the coffin...
Rippem- NO offense, but just stick to your Slug boat...aka Formula, That new 35 would probably pass you on one motor. You enjoy your Big cabbin and Flat screen TV. These V bottom speeds arent goin to kill insurance, if anything its gonna be these horrible accidents happening on Ploker Runs. Remember unlike buyin a Ferrai there is no speed limit for most of the time, at least where I boat. How often does an exotic sports car owner push their cars to the limit....Ah Never.
Now how often would someone push that new 35 to the limit?... AH... as often as possible.

Though I see you thought twice and deleted your attempts to fukk up the "wives and GF's thread" before very many caught it...

smart man. See...being a "newbie" here (though you are posting 3-4 times a day, EVERY day since you registered, and that includes July and August, when most are BOATING...hmmm)

you really don't know jack sh!t about this board, the people on it, or where the boundaries lie...

you know the old saying..."give a man enough rope..."

there are alot of SMART FELLERS (as you say) around here, and they'll figure you for the troll you are soon enough...

The boat was awesome at 103 - 104mph 5 people and we topped off fuel before we left I was thinking yea right 103 no way. We had a hand held GPS it was reading 105 boat speedo was reading 103 - 104 over cross waves boat felt good. New poker run boat any one 103+ and we can offer 5 year warranty's.
