Seriously, Skaters are phenominal...quite possibly the best performance boat in the world. The factory is amazing, the layup and technology in the boats are top-notch...and the finished products do their talking on the water. But if you don't understand the difference between the two companies...and the required advertising and marketing techniques for each nameplate...well...you ain't gonna beat a Ferrari with a Corvette.

Or is the fact that I don't have the scratch to buy myself a new work-of-art every year detrimental to the power of my opinion in your eyes?

There is really no reason for people to get all fired up over this...I don't get it. And for the record...if I did have the money, I'd be in a Cigarette, so no, it has nothing to do with the fact that I own a Fountain.
I laugh and giggle at threads like this. Who's getting "All Fired Up" now? Why'd ya have to bring Outerlimits into it. (Some are gonna get this comment and some just won't)

Yep. All fired up. That's me. This is exactly like a <gasp> APACHE thread!

I hope I'm not offending anyone...not trying to...just saying I was an advertising/marketing major...and look at the big picture...Reggie got people talking.

Since we are all such know-it-alls on the subject of offshore powerboats, Reggie's marketing ploy is looked upon with a large degree of derision. But to the average Joe on the water who thinks Fountain makes a killer boat...well...this would tend to attract him to the brand, no?

Anybody who knows the FIRST THING about marketing is well aware of the saying: ANY publicity is good publicity. Nuf said.
one problem with your marketing synopsis...theres no "average joe" in offshore boating. Any publicity is good publicity works for a lot of products but not performance boating. This community is so small, negative (read arrogant) ad campaigns due hurt sales.

Reggie needs to fire his advertising people and start over. All the shinanigans and b.s. He throws throws around take away from his legit/numerous accomplishments. Only problem with firing his ad guys is I suppose he'd have to fire himself!
