How close is the MTI booth to the Fountain one at the Miami or Lauderdale show, They should put Ginos boat as close as they can to where Reggie is so he can look at it longer. I plan to go by and poke some fun at the shows.

I heard the Mercedes boat is not going to be shown at all, like it wasn't there. I'm sure this will start a lot of talk.
I have one thing to say, If Cat Killer isn't shown passing the Mercedes boat, then where is it??
I'm pretty sure we were there!
even if cat killer (or whatever it is now called) did beat all of the cats, i think mercedes would be edited out. unless mercedes ponied up some cash for the name exposure. that is my .02

WOW Gino: I guess Reggie thinks we are all idiots if he runs a promotion like that? The boating community is a very small and tight community. He could Edit what he wants but everyone knows what the real deal is. This isn't SBI anymore were he can dominate and say who can run and cant. Poker Runs are the real world with real Boat Buyers.

I don't think Reggie is trying to sell any of us on OSO boats. He knows we already have our boating preferences and are likely not to change. He is targeting the first time performance boater or the out of the loop boater who is not on OSO.

Just my opinion.

Gold Digger is an Outerlimits cat that looks like a race boat with the canopy. Fountain is probably going to exploit the heck out of that. Even though Bill has told us he had his wife in the Gold Digger boat for a nice ride not a race. The video will make it into a race. Love him or hate him, Reggie sells a lot of fast boats.

Not only did I have my wife onboard,we had WIVES with us. Plural. Nice joy ride

Mti should set up their booth after Fountain, and place the "cat" in front of their boats with a sign promoting the proper running order in the real world!!!

Suppose for a minute something had gone wrong, and the whole mess wound up in court. Could any jury ever be 100% convinced that Fountain wasn't culpable for provoking a fight in the wrong environment? It was like flashing gang colors in the wrong neighborhood, and then pulling the guns out. They were looking for trouble, and only got a little. If there had been a crash, they would have gotten a LOT of trouble.

Egos will be the death of Poker Runs. The infection has already set in.
