I find it incredibly odd that Reggie didn't bring that boat out for promotion, when his company was having a rough time. If he had/has a 200mph Vee in his hand, he'd have shown it to everyone. Reggie would want THAT record as quick as he could get it.
There was no need to push that at that point. I mean there's a real possibility people would die trying to make that run. Then the business went into meltdown. No more to it than that B.

I totally understand

I'd be REALLY concerned about someone dying, trying to run 200mph in ANYONE's Vee bottom. That's just SO damn fast in anything, but only having 8ft of beam around me, would be a religious experience to say the least!

One of my better Key West runs was the last 40 miles from Sunshine Key to Key West with Mike and Bob in XXX and myself and crew in Freedom US1. Great boat great people!! We ran the crap out of both boats for 40 miles!!! It was a blast!!!! Thats what it all about as far as I'm concern. Who really cares who the fastest is. Somebody will always be faster at a given moment it time. Have fun with it. See some of you guys in Key West!

Funny how your link shows a 35 Nordic in the address but it is actually another awesome 47 GTX!

It would be a tough call on either GTX, everything is new on both and both have great paint/power. They are also priced similarly.
