I was boating today and went to the Yardhouse.
There was a big group of very attractive, sexy, scantily-clad girls.
As I pulled up in my Fountain, the girls came running down the gangway to the float. They said "We were going to have sex with that guy over there in the Outerlimits. But now Fountain has the kilo, and we want to have sex with you."

It took most of the afternoon.

Reggie's records didn't influence my purchase. I bought mine because I liked it. There are a lot of great boats out there that don't hold records that I would love to own. Saying that Sonic, Baja, Cigarette, Formula, Donzi, etc... shouldn't be considered is a limited way of thinking.

I never said it did or should, please see my other post. And once it was posted that the boat Reggie drove today was one he built not Skater, I was fine with it. I just want the people to be able to get what he says he has. More power to Reggie I hope they both go faster just don't do it in a boat we can't get. Not in a one off boat built by NASA just for the record and that goes for OL to.

Talking FYI----- The Best is yet to come!!!

For your information, Fountain has another boat in the shop that has inline motors not staggered like the boat used to set the record that is lighter and faster than the boat they used today! The best they have is still to come! Hold on to your Hats!

I would agree. Hope we see more records in the near future no matter who sets them. BTW, I love OL and would love to see pictures of your boat when you get it. I won't bash it!

I'm just pissed because my prediction was so far off. I predicted 158, and was off by 1.1 mph.

"The horror, the horror...."
