Saber I do not think that my opinion of him would change if his company failed. I hope that people do not change their opinion of me and my work if my company can not weather this most recent curve ball that I have been tossed. Remember you do not run a company like that on your own. He has a board of directors and a lot of people that go into the decision making process for those boats. Hell maybe some one was skimming off the top some were and they never caught it in the "good" times and now it is coming to haunt them. I mean there are so many variables hear that we could speculate for ever and NEVER be correct about it.

peoples opinion of your character should'nt change, but opinions of your business skills might. when you put yourself up on a pedestal , you just have further to fall down. hope you get your problems solved, i have my own business too, ain't it fun! good luck

SABER28,

Yup, you are EXACTLY right I said that. See, I have been racing and running poker runs for some 10 years now. I have many top three finishes to my credit on the racing circuits, APBA, SBI and the now defunct U.S. Offshore. I have seen and at times been in these same aforementioned boats when they have out run and out handled boats that were much, much larger. I have seen a 28 Ocke Mannerfelt BatBoat with a single engine walk by 30 Shadows and 32 Skaters. I have seen and run in 24 and 28 Skaters easily pass and run more smoothly than much larger vee bottoms. It does not make those Vees bad boats, this is merely to illustrate the inaccuracy of your prior statement.

Cheers,

Shane

Saber, let it go. This whole thread is a boring rehash of old opinions. Who really cares?

Man O' Man..... This is why I own a Formula.!! No posts like this, the Porters have too much class to ever go on like Reggie. .....
now there's one for ya'....the Porters & their racing efforts are a CLASS act.
REGGIES thoughts: ...... (and it does get him MAJOR attention.)
Just remember that most all POLITICIANS say: ANY media coverage is good, it gets your name out there. That's what he wants!!!
His boats are kinda attractive but I have not seen one here hold up as well as a Formula...... I personally prefer the "finished", flowing solid design of Formula's. I doesn't mean his (Fountain)is not a good boat, they are fast, Most Fountain owners I have met, seem to be of the more aggressive type ( that is not bad!!)and add things to go faster. Some will go a LOT FASTER, BUT NOT BECAUSE OF REGGIE. They would go faster in anything!

Enough bashing, you all sound like a bunch of little old ladies at a tea party with nothing better to do.
