Default Congrats to the new king of V !!!!

When you consider how the Extreme is built, and the speeds they are capable of, it's only a matter of time before the checkered flags start piling up.

I am sorry crichdsn but you are incorrect. I am the person who sold the very first 39 Extreme back in 1999. Also I raced and crewed with the team. We were the guinea pigs and are very happy that Mark Spates is finally in the lime light!

From everyone I've ever spoken with that has raced a Hull that Mark Spates has built (Including Bob Teague) they have all said he is the BEST V-Hull builder in the world, and the only reason a few of them are still alive !!!

It`s not a negitive thing, Its just the fact that the boat has not won a race ,its got some great speed but not a winner .

It sure has led a number of races this year only to be struck by gremlins. It is only a matter of time before the win. The MUSCLE boat is a SKATER by the way it was the last boat they built. Of course Fountain just "DID" the bottom on it, but where did that go in Sarasota?

Not to knock Extreme, but Bob Teague had one a couple years ago and couldn't keep it from going upside-down during races. He has sold the boat and is back in a Fountain. They might go fast in a straight line, but the race course tells the full story.
