You are missing the point. Mr. Sgro and Mr. Fiore shouldnt be in the boat together attempting all this.

Firstly its a complete waste of money and secondly when you exist in an industry this small sometimes you can look around and see what your peers are doing to promote their product.

Do you see any other owners doing this ?? Wonder why.

The only other person that tried all this as a marketing tool went broke.

You don't need to hold a world sanctioned event and press release to run 170+ in vee bottom FYI.

I understand your point, but who is gonna do it then??? who has the $$$, shop, tooling, knowledge and drive to put it all together??? records are made to be broken.... how many boat sales do you think can be attributed to Reggie's record??? No way to know but I'd say a lot!!!! I don't think its a good idea for them both to be in the boat at the same time either. I'm not questioning your opinion just looking at the other side of the coin too...lol

I dont know how many boats they sell in a year but its hardly worth risking your life to sell 2-3 more.
Anyone on here with half a brain knows the setup and power isnt what is sold every day.

Think REWARD/RISK.

Re your comment about how many boats did Reggie sell by setting a record.......well Reggie is starting with a fresh slate now.....and what has he said will be in his lineup at the outset? Center Consoles.

This doesnt have to happen. Proves nothing.

OL is a great boat. Put a couple more cup holders in it, turn up the music and have a nice life.
Thats what counts.

174, 182, 191 ??? Who gives a phuck??

I completely understand and basically agree with your thought process here. But on the flip side of the coin - sometimes personal reward is worth the estimated risk involved. Many things in life that we do are inherently dangerous. With the proper training, experience and preparation, hopefully you lower that risk.

And as the great Fabio Buzzi once said:
"Records are the true marks for progress"

I hear ya but in this case with so many people dependent on your health I repectfully disagree.
If the record is beaten by 1 or 2 mph , there will be 10 pages of how accurate the GPS was or tailwind.

Meaningless risk.
