the 28 definetly has a nice ride. went out in key west last year in one and on the ohio a few times. wonder if that could be made SVL eligable with an addition of a full canopy. does APBA consider it a V hull?

CB Cig,
Just do it, Chris and his crew are wonderful. You won't regret it...

Getreal,

Gee,
How in the hell did I miss this thread???
First of all, Chris Reindl runs a great program! It is a great way to get started and recognized in racing!
The Ocke Design is a great boat and highly recognized Internationally.
Amy, I am sorry you are so bitter, but you should look and see where the Reindl program has gone..........
Batboats is how I got my start as well as many others who have moved on and stayed with racing. Bobby Fisher, John Harlan, Eric, are just a few to mention.
I have been sponsored,and entered, or raced race with some of our best World Class racers, such as Sarah Donohue, Paul Nemschoff, Gary Decucies, Eric Tredwell, Roy Schader, (Nigel Hook, but we never got to run!) Just to mention a few. Amy, you never raced, and the boats are very safe , so you should leave your negative comments out.
Many other great teams have raced them as well, Team Virgin, Joey Gratton,etc.
GEBB, You have a long way to go before I will jump in a Cat with you! Roy is my Cat partner! I give you credit though, keep up the good work.

I will be back racing a Bat next season with a all female team. 4 top gals! As well as a SVL.
Roy, If you get that Big Cat togehter, I am in, for I am the one who got you in a Bat! LOL!

As far as Poker Runs they are a blast, and will keep up with the Big Guys in the rough!
Roger, Hope to see ya on the left coast this year!!

I've always wanted to ride in one but none are in my area...Are they very expensive? How fast are they typically?

What area are you in??
They go almost every where....As Far as speed, with the Volvo Penta, they are running 65-75 mph.
Chris has a new engine package for next year, should go around 90 mph.

It is a great program and the guys put on a good show. You get plenty of time to get comfortable in the boat. It definatly takes some time to get used to being in a canapy and there are side view mirrors. When I took one out for a ride in some REAL rough stuff out on Cape Cod the boats ran great and fast.

As far as the employeed issue I do not buy it but then again dosn't EVERY employee talk chit about their boss? I know all mine used to and I thought I was a very generous person to a fault so.......I FIRED THEM ALL

I believe that the price I was told for a new one was 70 grand. He said for in the high 20's you could get a used one perhaps. I hope to buy one at some time in the near future.

Batgirl,
If you re-read the thread, you will see posts 20, 21, and 22 were a joke between glassdave and getreal and blonds in general.

I never mentioned anything about you personally or getting in a cat with you. So stop thinking everything is about you just because you are blond.

Just wanted to nicely point that out to you....

Have a good holiday!
