There were three INXS's. One was an apache, the other two were fountains. One was a 47 and the other was a 45. The 45 Fountain set a kilo record only to be broken by ohio steel later that day. The two fountain INXS boats had some of the loudest exhaust systems i have ever heard..

Well the 45 canopied version I believe is no longer with us or it may have been rerigged and is white with red and blue striping.

There is an old story of dispute between Reggie and John that goes something like this. John got pissed at Reggie over god knows what and instead of racing the boat decided to put it in a crusher and smash it into a pancake before he would let anyone race it. Dont know if those are the facts or not. Also heard it was a flowerpot in Johns backyard. That's all I know.

Thats my story and I am sticking to it.
