Does it surprise any of you that a fountain was caught cheating at a boat race? They are always suspected and sometimes caught.

If any of you fiollowed the SVL drama last year, the V Lite class was heading in a possitive direction. Boat counts were coming up, competition was close and most of all we were all friends. We all helped each other. And would not consider cheating. Then, one week before the first race of the season, a new boat comes along. (Fountain) They Did not go through standard procedure with the tech commitee, 90 days prior to first race. This was a one off boat. No drawings or specs were submitted to OSS for approval. But OSS deemed him legal to race. the owner would threaten a lawsuit if anyone got near his boat, including tech inspectors. He felt he was above everyone else and did not have to follow standard procedures. After that, the class fell divided and boat count dropped off. I must say in my opinion, Brian Foreskin and Doc Janssen are two of the most arrogant people I have ever had the displeasure of racing with. We Were warned repeatedly, not to let this boat run with us, but we did any way and look what happened.

With regards to Biloxi. A great site by the way. I feel bad for them. But in my opinion the poor turnout is the fault of OSS. They had no schedule until late winter, when the other two orgs had their schedules posted. the teams decided that they would make their schedules with what was already published. They didnt know if OSS would even post a schedule other than Biloxi. Last year, we had 9 boats in our class. Thats all they had total this year.

So yes... you can call it a race if only 11 boats show, but they would need to be in the same class.
Nice job

Win at all costs!

Randy (Typhoon) ...I applaud your good sportsmanship and wanting to be proffessional about this. But you were the victim my friend. Why should this guy get a pass?
Very True

Three hour drive to watch 9 boats ( I do appreciate their effort) but I doubt I'm going back to Biloxi to watch a race unless they guarantee a showing. Anybody really think that the spectators were happy? No! Biloxi is super for viewing from all the casinos parking decks that cater to the race. It's a shame, because the past races were great.

Well said Bill.

As far as getting on with things, I say nonsense. Public humiliation is part of the punishment for stupidity.....

Doc and Brian have won the first two races in KW in their Outerlimits. Meanwhile, their old Fountain has finished at the back of the pack.
