Do you really think Reggie had the puss on thru
the whole ceremony or was that just a lucky shot
by some photographer.

Yea, I agree about all Fountains looking alike, but
so do Formulas,Scarabs and Bajas. If they put
$80k paint jobs on them, guys like me could
never buy them. Thats the difference between
custom & production. I still think Fountains are
one of the best looking boats around, for a
production boat. Apparently alot of other people
think so to. And judging by the used market they
seem to hold their value as good as any Cig, At,
Pantera or others based on what they cost new.

I didnt think his had a cabin but you can get a small half cabin with some. I'm sure you could get a full cabin in one but why would you bother that with the GTX. I perfer a full cabin I can almost stand in and take the speed hit, if I only wanted speed I would buy a cat.

There was another V-Hull with turbines as well. Its was a Black Thunder called Turbinator. It was in Key West in '99 on the FPC run.

Default It Takes More Than Just HP

If you don't think Reggie hasn't already had over 3000hp in a step bottom race boat you're mistaken. Ask Art Lilly

wicked won you know the truth, its not putting big hp in a boat its handling too. i run my boat at 125 and its like cruising at 60.
epeek its not about bragging its about reggie attitude towards people. i raced a whole season with sbi and saw him at every race and he walk right past me,if i was running a foutain he talk to me.
mike is about talking to everybody and helping like in sarasota his crew helped fix the poker run america boat with reggie throttling,thata what its about. somedays you get the bear and some days the bear gets you.
its all good,jus have fun and run hard.
