craig,

i was not saying it in a mean way and to tell the truth i really have not been folling your compny allthough i do wish you the best of luck. i was just repeating what sombody else had told me . so if my statement was incorect then i do respectivley apologize to you and your team who created the boat.

it does look beatiful and with your history i am sure it will be a runner also.

This one is easy:
Why did Peter/Skater build the boat?
Because Reggie wanted it to stay together long enough to win!

Craig, When does the west coast get to see one of your boats? You have Jim and Jeff passing out hats to everyone and there mother. Jim actually handed me a few when I was at DSM and told me to pass them out. LMAO!!! I figured it took alot of balls, you have the right marketing out here already! Good luck.

Ambusher:
Well its good to know the Race boats stay together. But wasnt the point that some are not laid up buy Fountain? Maybe Skater should Lay up a few pleasure versions, Just to help the statistics!

I REALLY DON'T THINK THAT IS CLOSE...THE ONLY THING REGGIE PIONEERED IS "PROPER" ADVERTISING IN THE BOAT BUILDING BUSINESS...THE GUY IS A MASTER PROMOTER...he has done well racing, proof that money can do a lot when used properly. BUT, i would challenge ANY fountain, EQUAL POWER to length, in real offshore conditions.
Let's just say his timing was perfect as NOBODY races true offshoe anymore!

Actually a lot of people discovered bi and tri axial fibreglass at about the same time....We used it in Shadows before the first Fountain Executioner was even built....(by Excalibur).........as far as foam core is concerned... Heck Boston Whaler was foam cored in 1962..........so that technology has been around a L-o-o-o-ong time.

Reggie did spank some serious booty with his triple engine 47 in Lake Pontchatrain back in 90 or 91............ That boat was definitely the right gun for that gunfight.......
