I'm glad that our poker run is just That a POKER run, We don't care who gets to the first card stop first. just as long as every one has a good time and is safe. Lets face it we have had 4-8 footers the past 2 years and not some flat river. We all like to go fast, that is obvious or we would be on Blow boat .com , There are varied makes and models that everyone buys for different reasons, give props to those who deserves it . To run any boat at those speeds is pure talent , balls and money. Whether it be a Cat or Vee. I say congrats to both.

When you clean up { straighten and sharpen} the bottom it looks like that. You may notice that on a few race boats. Fresh sand and straight is fast. Adding paint makes it look good but than you have to sand again.

Thats what you get when you want 100%

I ran 60 mph all day long, 135 mile round trip and a full tank of gas!
As an Apache man I think you would know. Didn't Kramer and company first coin the phrase "Cat Killer"?

as mercman said its a function of the blueprinting process. Also these boats are epoxy which you really cant gelcoat after its faired out so it must be painted. Paint just doesnt have the durability that gel has and you sometimes you'll lose a bit of it. Superficial really and i doubt it would affect the performance any. I have seen it on other epoxy raceboats.

I do believe Warpath was built to show up some of those kittys and they did surprise a few! Although that was when the playing field was a little more even...nowadays that's not the case!

Shoot man...I was at the back of the pack the whole day especially since I kinda missed the start when the pace boat took off ahead about 2-3 miles south of the bridge. Too bad they don't have the poker run south of the VZB, it was about 3ft. coming back to Jersey, that was the only water we saw all day long!

I never heard that term from them back in the day...and Ben's last race boats were all cats.

I agree....I would never own a fountain simply because of Reggie and all the BS publicity...I bought a sacarab ...have friends with fountains and they like them....but I will never own a fountain simply because of the way the company tries to always be in the lime light....and sometimes may tell an untruth...

Hey Jimmy...if Kramer and company invented the Cat Killer phrase...does that mean Reggie "invented" I mean copied it?

I agree with your point on fountain getting publicity for his target audience, but as you said , in reality power for power there aint no way a v's beating a cat !
