Dredge,

No worries. I didn't feel "ragged on" at all. Sames goes for FeverMike and Fountain42 and anyone else. I just want to be debated, agreed with or whatever for the idiotic things I actually say rather than the idiotic things I people think I said. Now, I'm getting confused.

Really, gentlemen, and I mean that in truest sense, whether or not Fountain pulls it off this has been (for me anyway) an informative and entertaining thread.

Who would have guessed.
if by "we" you mean fountain guys, then yes....

IF reggie goes 200+ (that is a huge if due to all the unknown factors in a speed event like this) then you can compare him to the fastest cat builders, but right now, he is still a ways behind in the speed records... reggie is king of the v's, it should be interesting what he can put down in the next 6 weeks.....

do any of you fountain insiders ( i assume this since you all 'know' he is gonna run 200+ ) know when this run is going to take place yet? i wouldn't think this is the kinda thing you just throw together one morning....

I just spent an hour reading this entire thread, and this post stuck in my mind the most. How true! Run whatcha brung, no holds barred. You are only restricted by the size of your nuts! I don't give a rats ass why he does it, but I have to repect that he WANTS to do it.

I've never been a big Fountain fan, but you have to respect Reggie for what he has done, regardless of his hair, chains, etc. He is undoubtably the most recognized name in offshore, still living.

Guys, lets face it. To be a speed record holder you have to be halfway nuts and carry a monster set of balls between your legs. Look at Warby, he can barely walk. And why do you think Darren's sitting?

I hear Reggie used to be taller, but the weight pulled him down.
In 6 years it'll be a whole new ballgame...

He idled with shrinkwrap under his boat, did not complete 1 lap, accepted the World Championship Title in Super Vee Unlimited for it, then advertised winning the Title.
I don't call it bashing, I call it stating the facts.

As I said, I don't hate the man, I just dislike the gimmicks and rule bending...

And I will ask you since you must know Byrd, How does a boat pass pre-race inspection with a delaminated bottom and then is allowed out on the course while 3 other sea worthy boats were told they had to stay on their trailers?

And people wonder why I have to repeat myself...
Obviously you didn't read my posts correctly the 1st time....

Fountains are the only vee's to win over cats in racing 3 times.(not including keywest this year because i won't claim it) the run will be in Washington , NC in Jan. there isn't a date set because the guy building the motors and paying for this to happen just delivered the motors and the boat is being put together. that isn't promising they will stay together.
