LOOSE CANNON was right there with Gino at Jacksonville.

Reggie or should I say Ben jumped the start by a half a mile and then did NOT obey one NO wake sign or show any signs of safe driving throughout the run. The driver shot through a bridge without even cnsidering what was on the other side. They stayed on the far outside so that they could cut every corner they could.

No one was ever aware that we were supposed to be racing.

This was a Poker Run and you know how everyone stays that Poker Runs are not a race.

They were reckless and were a prime example of why other people hate performance boating.

WE will be looking for V-bottom prey to pounce on at LOTO too!

Who gives a sh!t what other vee boats or "most" cats run....This is all about Reggies flat out lie in his advertising campaign that his boats are the fastest (not true), safest (opinion), best handling (arguable) boats in the world....Not "in their class", not "vee bottoms"....BOATS You open your mouth like that you better be able to back it up....Bottom line...He can't. Hes a lier and spreads propaganda to sell boats at any cost, even at the cost of safety....End of story.

Fastest 3 Day Average's in order:

1. Budweiser Select (Cat)-118.98, 2. Team CRC (Cat)-112.21, 3. Miss Geico (Cat)-110.63, 4. Aqua-Mania (Cat)-106.96, 5. JD Byrider (Cat)-105.33, 6. Nichols Offshore (Cat)-104.41, 7. BTM Marine (Cat)-103.81, 8. Motley Crew (Cat)-98.56, 9. RioRoses (Vee)-98.37, 10. Reliable Carriers (Cat)-97.64

In the top 10 speeds, 9th was the best the Vee could do.

and no, it seems to me, that NYC is the second time this has happened now...

if we forgot, JAX was first...
When you run crazy hp just to be competitive, reliability goes out the window. A cat will run the same speeds with a fraction of the horsepower, and much better reliability. (Not to mention better fuel mielage!)

No skater CAT vs. Fountain V equal power. Who gets walked like a dog? I give you one guess and the first one only counts if you say Fountain. Reggie was not looking for a apples to apples race. He said he was faster then cats. We all know this is not even close to being true as there are a few cats that can SMOKE that boat. I assume you saw the video the other day of the 210 MPH pass? Were is the video of Reggie going 211? Well tell I see it then he aint the cat killer.
