Now there's a great name in performance boating that many people don't know. Used to deal with Darris a good bit when we were running outboards. Allisons are some killer boats and always ahead of the performance curve.

I dont want any BS if you own a Fountain or Cat. Is this true or not. Now this was at a poker run and not at a race. But are these the fastest boats out or just a puffer video?

Of course not..... There aren't any vee bottoms that want any of that Fountain, but PLENTY of cats would love a piece if they'd ever run it again......WITH a 3rd party chopper filming.

SO mixed I see and Reggie can bite the big on for all i care seems he takes everyone elses idea and non of his own. But will give him credit due that he makes them all work very well together. But I still wont buy a cookie cutter boat even if would be faster its like a mustang everybody and there sister has one.

And Reggie didn't copy or steal the Idea from Steve. The 10 meter was a modified Excaliber.

Chris, Can you see the 29 Mirage in a 30 Velocity. Seems to me Steve splashed a Mirage added the notch and the pad to it.

Fountain seems to have a reverse public relations department. Some of their accomplishments are historic and monumental, but the continual trumpeting and belittling everyone else leaves a very bad taste in my mouth despite their accomplishments. I watched the Don Aronow thing on Reggie's show last Sunday. When they interviewed Furshman, he forgot that there were 3 or 4 cats in front of him, and used the opportunity to take another swipe at Outerlimits. Even their customers are catching it.................
