The coolest thing about it was that it wasn't really that unexpected, the OL guys have a great reputation up here for helping who ever and when ever they can.

I wonder if the roles were reversed would the same thing happen ????

Maybe Fountain can thank OL in thier next full page advertorial.
Bingo Boxy.....
I doubt Reggie's crew would do the same!
They don't even support their own!
See next post.

I'm racking my brain, I don't remember this boat at all? Who ran it and when? The only white fountian I remember is Turkey Toy?

What is your problem all of the sudden Cuda? Oh, and congrats to Shogren on that impressive run

That's not how Reggie would present it if the shoe was on the other foot. How does it feel to get a taste of your own medicine.
Dude. I'm not Reggie. Get bent.
Just because I own a Fountain, doesn't make me a diehard Reggie fan. This arguement is so tired.
Since popular opinion seems to be that my 35 Fountain is only about a 25 foot boat, what do you say to bringing that Baja up to Lake Michigan some time...should be an even race, right? We'll see how you like YOUR medicine.
