Let's see, you joined OSO in '07 which is 5 yrs after I did and I'm the "newb"? Oh wait, I see. Your boat is bigger than mine. I understand.
Know where your hero got his start?
Know which boat he splashed when he "designed" the 1st legendary Fountain?
Know which brand ran the 1st pad bottom that he Invented?
Know which brand ran the first notched transom that he invented?
Know which brand ran the first beak bow that he invented?
Know which yr he first drove the company in the ditch so Mercruiser had to take it over to recoup part of their losses?
Know who he blamed then?

I get attacked for not liking your hero? I know my history and have done my home work have you?
I like the boats just not the man.
Pretty sure that's allowed on "your" site isn't it?

You've got a big boat w/big motors. I'm impressed and want to be you.
"Know" What hull holds more kilo records than any vee bottom? "Know" the man/family who got them their. "Know" that you are a moron...and "Know" that you envy Reggies Hair Helmet.

Ooh, ooh...Pick me, pick me...I know I know!!! I can answer most of those with 3 names... Paul, Steve, Howard...

This thread got off track quick...

140 is bad ass in any boat. Can't wait to see all the pics. This is definitely an event I need to go to one year.

you memorized your sales manual front to rear didn't you?
Now I'm a moron too. Tell you what Einstein. Bring your boat down here and lets see if I can drive it as fast as you can. You pick the water conditions.
Then you climb in my boat and see if you can drive it as fast as I can in ANY water.
Don't forget your gold chains numb nutz.

Course your avatar don't mean anything. Could be daddy's boat or in place of the 22' Bayliner "Arriva Sport" that you really own.

PS, Ziemer you mean it's not Reggie, Reggie, Reggie Guess history and the truth doesn't matter. Still remember the interview on ntl TV at the offshore race (don't remember which one) and they interviewed a driver and asked him about the Fountain domination of his class. He said nope, not at this race. It's rough and it's real offshore here. Said the Fountains will be the fastest in the calm water behind the break wall and then will get passed as soon as we hit open water. Happened exactly as the guy said. Freagin hilarious.

So yeah, 140 may not be 177 but still bad ass in a large Vee and fastest there. End of story and well done guys! Think I read this was a full interior boat too
CONGRATS!

Billy Betz in his Outerlimits SV 43 is the fastest vee bottom as of now at LOTO with a 140mph pass. The boat is a full canopied boat with 1075's by JCPERFORMANCE with number 6's! The boat will run past 140 given more room to stretch her legs!!

Congratulations Billy Betz and JC Performance!
139/140 mph is still very fast and and very impressive with 1200's or 1075's in a 43' V-Bottom.

Just read in the My Way thread per JC in post #63 the motors are 1200's.

Im sure you have lots of high speed runs in the Sonic...I would wager to say that up to and including 57MPH...you could probably out wheel me. Who has the fastest Vee Bottoms?

This boat can run close to 150 with the motors in it. We have other boats that can run reggies record. I've been 170 with plenty more left. Reggie still holds the sanctioned vee bottom record there's no arguing that. Not being biased but outerlimits builds more fast vee bottoms than anyone.
