Rumor has it that Mike knows Reggie might be packing more punch. He just knows his boat can stay in the water at those speeds.

Its now becoming more about the hull than the power. Can a V be stable at 160?

Did the OL that set the record have a cabin in it ? So is Regie running a canopied race boat against the outer limits pleasure cockpit ? Isn't it true people have gained 5-10 mph by just covering the cockpit with a canvas cover ? I thought I read that somewhere .

OL took it but I sure as hell would not want Fountain aiming at me. As for this record I think its just ego, bring two boats same power and in same price range and then see who pulls forward, that is what I like.

Its not about that. Its about advertising. The ads never say what power it took to get there, nor how long you could run that fast. Just a two way average speed with a prop pushing the boat along.

It would suprise me if Reggie used smaller motors unless Mercury wouldn't let him use after market power. If you were going to try to break a kilo record, I would think Reggie would stuff as much horsepower between the stringers as he could. I dont think he would leave anything on the table. The record is to important to him. Unless he is trying to prove a point with his product by using less HP. to do it.
