The answer to the question is: Not if he's in his right mind.

Reggie does what he does, stepped V-bottoms, very well. Love him or hate him, like his shareholder statements or not. Why would he introduce a cat at a time when performance-boat sales, across the board, are in the proverbial crapper?

For the record: Fountain did build some MTI cats. I don't know how many, but I'm sure someone on this board does. And, yes, they were pleasure cats.

As for an MTI being a "glorified Skater," tell it to Randy Scism. I don't know if an MTI is a Skater rip-off, as has been claimed by some, or if Randy Scism came up with it all on his own. No doubt, he learned a lot from Peter Hledin when Skater supplied boats to the Dubai Victory team that raced for and eventually managed.

Regardless of where it came from, an MTI isn't a "glorified" anything. It's a very fine catamaran in its own right.

I remember hearing the story of when Reggie bought the Fabio Buzzi cat and named it "Fountain'... I heard that Reg took the boat and made his own modifications to it and it emerged 15 mph slower.

MTI has done pretty well with its version of the cat hull
