And, of course, you had so much to do with it, and personally deserve so much credit!

Catmando,
Lets be real everybody knows that my old 38 Fountain with Joe at the throttles won the national title last year in OSS. The Miccosukke boat just needed to make the start at the final national race in Las Vegas to lock up the title due to the lead in points we had. We could of used my open fisherman.

I believe someone is on a mission and I'm loving it

Ask joe how fast his 40 fountain that burnt in Miami was and you will see the speeds on the new ones are possible. His boat went 112 first time in the water 2 years ago and I think has the kilo at 114 average or something like that.
I don't think we will run out of gas like in Las Vegas again
Thanks for the reminder

You could not have put it any better. I admire your ability to communicate what your are feeling. I'm sure your Daddy is really proud of you. Your future looks really bright in a dead sport. Instead of showing your lack of class, I would begin to think about your future and what it holds. Job qualifications ex racer, no trades to speak of.

Beyond that everyone knows that it is easy to cheat and not get caught( ecm's, fuel, oil) I personally don't believe Mercury would risk tossing yall, do to the inherent business relationship.(Simple terms it could make mercury look stupid)

As far as racing, who really cares, it is a dwindeling sport that means very little. The question you should really ask is, why is it that when you go to the larger poker runs you can't hardly find a Fountain? I counted two besides the race boat out of 105 boats at Sarasota. If it is a superior boat where were they. Must have been hanging on the inland lakes. I for one have owned Fountains and feel that they are nice boats. I also try never to bash manufactuers let alone Fountains. But I must say that in the 16 poker runs that I did last year I never had a Fountain run near me or pass me.

Everyone that understands the sport knows that Fountain will push the limits(it's not cheating till you get caught). Until then either big water has to be the equalizer or the sanctioning bodies must step up. I for one don't believe in all the Fountain hype and propaganda. I myself have never been a Golden Corral kinda person I prefer Ruth's Chris.
