Bill, the boat looked great. You and I have similiar luck with mechanical issues on these runs. I was really glad to see you at the lunch dock when we got there. With all you've invested You deserve it.

I sure there are a lot of cats that could beat the Cash Killer if they wanted, they show up to a poker run with race boats.

Gino and the other people PAID to do a PR. The Fountain guys GOT PAID to do a PR. You flip the bill for everything I need to go real fast and I will show up at every big PR and go as fast as I can the whole time.

Wow....so many negative Fountain shots! Yeah, Reggie knows how to stir the pot! He's managed to get many of you guys all rattled! That's his competitive nature and what keeps things interesting....it's also advertising without spending a dime! This thread is getting as interesting and fun as the old "Apache" threads!

BTW for whatever reason Rio Roses kept it around 80 MPH the whole way to lunch.
That's right. I was only doing 80-90 mph. I'm not a Cat Killer by any means. With 750 Supercats that burn a lot of fuel, I was more worried about finishing the run that being the fastest. And we always look like a race team with full equipment, as it is not fun hitting the roll cage with your head after a hard landing.
I think I had one of the smaller engine packages anyway after what I saw on the dock.
I enjoy bring my raceboat to the events. For me it is not a race but a big social event with comraderie like I had in racing.

I also represent PRA sponsor Rio Roses who likes me bringing the boat too.

So I'll keep bringing it and not threaten anyone by it. 80-90 mph for me is just fine. Remember, it's not a race, right?

A special thanks to Larry Goldman who was so gracious to us at the dock helping to get us situated in a nasty crosswind.

it is getting his name out there, but not in a good light. reading some of the comments in this thread makes me never want a fountain. and i like fountains, but i would rather spend money on a boat/ company that doesnt act like their Sh*t doesn't stink.

Here's a composite of the first five through the pass at Boca Grande.
For those that are concerned with the numbers- the Mercedes boat came thru 14th and Rio Roses 20th.

I'll try to get more pix up soon.
