Awesome videos - Good Old days! Any chance you have one of Reagan and his Scarab as well? (The record holder from Anchorage to Seattle...)

Though you do have to give Fountain credit for their marketing stunts, I do have to point out one thing. Fountain is not the original cat killer. They borrowed that title from Apache! Check out this old video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_6vdTEChas&NR=1 Like I said, just stirring the pot to keep the entertainment going.
All we need to do is add the word "Apache" and the pot will REALLY get stirred.

Mike, just got back from Wesco's shop and have a 46 Cig hooked to my dually. Guess I'll be in it in a few more hours. Got a slip in Diversy for it for the next week. Stop by and go for a ride. New power went in on sat. that's what I was doin.

Bertram only survives b/c they were bought out by the Ferretti group.

So that leaves what, 2 of the companies you listed as really strong enough to stand on their own feet. Allison and Skater.

Excuse my ignorance, but I did not know that Checkmate was still in business, they should alert the press. Spectre had to totally divest themselves of their core boats due to insurance companies refusal to write policies for customers.

It's a very rough business and let us not forget the boat company that T2X was a sales manager for.
Checkmate is alive and well and have been for quite some time. The boats are all still hand laid. They don't build the best boats out there buy any means, but still they are alot of boat for the cash. They have been recently bought out which seams to be working out great!

This thread is turning out to be ridiculous like many of the fountain threads. Reggie must be doing something right to steer up this kind of controversy. He has been building great boats for quite sometime, he has an excellent history in racing. All the haters just need to give credit where credit is due, period. Just for the record I am partial to Cig and I hope to own one in the future.

T2X is just jealous that the Fountain Cat killer is more famous than he is!
