"why would anyone buy anything else?" Always the salesman. You gotta hand it to him. He can walk as well as he can talk.

"Worlds fastest V-bottoms... Any questions?"

Why yes, I have one... Why didn't you let Mike run with you when you promised him a chance to defend his title???


Sorry, couldn't pass that one up!




I'm blown away by how SMOOTH that boat looked running those speeds. SUPER COOL!

I know Reggie did it as a marketing ploy, but let me tell you, it worked! I have never liked Fountains, but after seeing how stable it was at those speeds, I may have to rethink my distaste of beaks.

Thumbs up

Look at it frame by frame as they pass by the the turn marker. I looks like they were about 20 ft from hitting the mooring post at 160 mph. and they did it twice. I would say that they were very confident with the handling of that hull at those speed. Reggie has some set of balls. I don't think I would of done that.

Thumbs Up Reggie
