T2X’s primary antagonists appear to be individuals threatened by his clever sense of humor or his unwavering assault on the senior Mr. Fountain? I personally find his writing greatly amusing but his attacks on Fountain Sr. a trifle all encompassing. I have spent a bit of time in a Fountain 42 PR and also a 38SF in somewhat less than ideal conditions. What ever issues one might have with Fountain’s business and promotional practices, he has a very good practical understanding of planing hydrodynamics. Stepped hulls were invented before any of us were born and pad keels are hardly new technology. However it is the combination of these and many other features that determine a truly great hull form. Of course everything is a compromise. Many designers can create a hull that absolutely dominates in flat water but would be incapable of crossing of even a small wake at speed. Conversely an offshore monster that eats up rough water (but at the expense of efficiency) is also not overly difficult to create. The art is designing a hull that is a reasonable balance of conflicting objectives, and for that I suspect T2X will begrudgingly concede Fountain has done a pretty good job with the aforementioned craft….or maybe he won’t but he’ll certainly provide some great entertainment in the process …

I don't find T2x bitter at all. My take is that he is very, very knowledgeable, helpful, has lots of experience and a no-nonsense guy who is not a fan of misinformation. It's always a learning moment for me when I read his post.

Okay...Now it's my turn!.... I have been patient and let every nitwit get enough off their chests to satisfy even guys from Long Island whose outsized screen names and inability to fathom history mask obvious latent issues stemming from some kind of toilet training mishaps in their youth.

Aside from questioning his marketing boasts and occasionally pointing out his diminutive size and outsized ego, usually tongue in cheek.......... I think the whole concept of my "assaults" on Reggie has been overblown, as has a lot of the redundant crap on this thread. In the past I have joked about him and posted some Wall Street Journal articles and statistics on FPB back when it was a public company. From time to time, I would also provide similar facts on Brunswick and other marine holdings. Some of the pictures and Elvis comparisons I have seen on this and other websites from other people are far more vicious and mean spirited than anything that I have offered, and a few have gone way too far IMHO.

I will repeat again for the record.... Reggie is a great boat racer and competitor, a relentless self promoter, and has devoted a good portion of his life to a boat company that has in many ways defined him. I have very few heros. While he may not be one of them, that ranks him with the majority of folks I know. I think, if you take the time to check, you will find that the overwhelming majority of my posts had nothing to do with Reggie, his boats or his company. Frankly I wish him well and hope for his continued success, perhaps with a lower volume of self aggrandizement.

The issue here is not really Reggie....It is the thin skinned, humorless, tight *ssed attitude adopted by his loyal minions who, much like the pre-pubescent girls at Elvis concerts back in the day, seem to gush defensively at the very mention of his name or product. This thread has featured a non stop litany of redundant babble by a handful of folks led by one guy who seems to be doing little more than raising his own post count by repeating a very tiring, boring and narrow view point and at the same time disingenuosly claiming to "respect" me and to be "learning" something at the same time. For the record I have tried to take this offline and create a fair and balanced relationship with him...which apparently hasn't worked.

In reviewing this thread, there were a fascinating number of pages generated in only 2 or 3 days. It started with and featured off base criticisms by a few uninformed and grammatically challenged Budinski's , juxtaposed against numerous endorsements from some of the most respected guys in the sport....all in all a very nice Christmas present for T2x, who is an alter ego I created to stir up controversy (seems to be working, eh?) and educate people on the various misconceptions and marketing nonsense rampant in the high performance boating industry.

T2x has been put through pages of scrutiny on this thread.... and I'm still here...and I ain't complaining..... I wonder if the shoe was on the other foot with a few of you folks could you do the same...? Or would you adopt the same pompous, knee jerk, narrow minded, myopic, lliliputian, shallow, back water, cretinous, outraged, obtuse, off based, politically correct, sympathy grabbing, neanderthal level, frigidly humorless, defensive, mispelled, overblown, under informed, sophomoric, chicken sh*t, windbag, bellowing that you have managed to pollute this thread with before running off and claiming that you were somehow "wronged"?.

In the end...all these pages... which started as a challenge ...have become (as I predicted) a thread about nothing...... or at the very least...a mostly positive thread about T2x.... (with a gratuitous plug for "Big Seas" thrown in for good measure ) .. and a perfect example of how to shoot oneself in the foot by starting a thread, aimed at bringing down someone else, and than making an ignorant, redundant, over reaching and yes.....(sigh)...."bitter"...fool of yourself in the process.

And on that note..........

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

T2x


P.S. Please fight the need to respond if you are only going to add more endlessly repetitive fuel to your own pyre. This would probably be a good time to shut up.....or, if you have half a brain...delete this thread.

Just sayin...

Where were you and what were you doing when you heard that Reggie had resigned?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I couldn't resist...........

Seems like to some of you this ranks up there with the Kennedy assassination.

When is the mourning period over so the world can move on to Christmas and other performance boat issues?..

dont remember taking aim so to speak.. i have an opinion, what its not founded,,, pleaseeee... so you can start a thread literaly taunting and being sarcastic and to be honest rude and offensive to some of us and not only on that thread but this one and others as well. so iam supposed to yield and now cower that the all mighty T2X has SPOKEN,,,,,cause your Better than Reggie. cause you are all knowing..cause you've been building cats since they were [email protected]#,, wrong guy buddy. un like you never claimed to know" anything" but to be nice and drink my milk.....
i never said anything to be rude and if something i said was offensive to whom ever i tried to recind my comment to be less offensive, even offered an opollogy.
as for your pompous, long, winded, relic, dusty, wind bag of a response , put it in yur pipe and smoke it while on your stage coach ride back to the home for the" KNOW IT ALL'S" chokin down viagra so maybe you can spend another minute in the drivers seat...

oh yeah thought five responses ago you were out....my half brain cant tell.
