Thumbs up Best Quote from Reggie at the COPS party Saturday.....

When asked if he planned on racing in the Great Lakes in the future, he went off on a bit of a tangent and said this:

Lake Michigan, from what I remember, is probably the roughest water we have ever raced in.

That is a paraphrase I guess, but he said it: Lake Michigan is really a rough place to boat.

Take that you ocean dwelling pukes!!!!!! Except Wasabe.... you are forgiven for the error in your thinking.

Yeah, even I was taller than him. But, he did have some interesting things to say. Fountain being sold to Mercury Marine in the near future raised a LOT of eyebrows. And his belief that his next kilo attempt to break OL's record will SHATTER it by more than 10 mph!! Can't wait to see that!!! He says his boat might hit 160 mph.... Go Reggie!!!

Oh, and shorty, I mean Norty, feel free to haul your Formula up here. I'll be your guide to all the fun the Great Lakes has to offer. Especially the ROUGH water!!!

Probably got hairspray in his eyes when he looked at the "LAKE".....I am sure he is using it to laminate his boats the way they come apart.
