We can do a nice open ocean run from the Ca. coast out to Catalina Island & back on a nice snotty afternoon.
NOW WE'RE TALKIN'. . . .
Two boats, similar length, similar power, offshore conditions, just ONE turn.
Somebody's got to take him up on this. . . . I'd be there but I'm only running a 32 footer. . . . any left-coast 42 beakers out there ? ? ? . . . .

The only thing more "stupid" and less intelligent is your post. I hate to break it to you, but Mike Fiore doesn't exactly go around with his hands off the wheel, whether it be testing, racing or pleasure boating. If you can't recognize a figure of speach when you see it then go back to school....either boating 101 or grammer. Either should help. Oh by the way, it wasn't an "exageration" either, just a response to someone else's ignorant comment about the OL having handling issues. I think that person stated that it was "the word he had heard". The problem is "the word" and HIS INFORMATION was wrong. So many people get on here and state "something they heard" from people that do not have all the facts and then post or repeat the wrong information as "fact" and they simply are not true.

So, to the author of the above post....have you ridden in any boat with Mike Fiore lately??? If not, i guess you have no place saying that you don't give someone "credence", since you don't know and I'm sure have never MET the man. With out knowing this person, how the hell do you knowing whether to give him "credence"? So stop talking out your a-- and stop being the person that is really STUPID!

Provenance of information and facts is the key, if it's not first hand information it's useless.

BBC is right, unless your in the game don't pass judgment, and definitely do not criticize solely on theoretical conclusions.

Maybe i am off topic, but in regards to the ORIGINAL post of this thread....
I had to cancel my subscribtions to PowerBoat, while I am over seas, so I do not have a picture of the previously mentioned Fountain. Could someone please help me out?

I have met Mike Fiore, not Reggie Fountain, but either way both of these guys are doing tremendous progressions for the sport that WE ALL love!!!!! I know many of you are much older than me, but after reading this thread and the other one about Fountain's new spead record...... (going to be rude here) not many of you sound like adults. It's great have brand loyalty, but what does all damn bickering accomplish? My .02 and I am sure a few others...
