Default Lot of Talk about the "Speed Record"

So I figured I would post the rules from SBI and APBA. In my opinion these are the only US bodies that can do a credible World Record trial.

SBI First: They are Adobe so you will have to go there and read yourself but I think I have made it as easy as possible for ya As I read this OL was not eligable to even run in a SBI event as the boat has not placed in any races this year..... or did I miss something?

http://www.superboat.com/pits/pdf/SBIPrulebook.pdf

The rules start on Page 35


APBA:
http://www.apba-offshore.com/rules.cfm

Hope this helps clear up some peoples point of view. I think that OL could certainly give Raggie a run for his money and even beat them however the back door way that they did it with WHO sanctioning the event....... Also the fact is that Reggie probably went even faster then OL to average his speed of 160 in one direction. The fact of the matter is Fountain could be fireing up a boat at this very second to run under these rules and set the bar even higher. Then who else will start to play in the game. Rules are Rules and you need to FALLOW THEM.

Animal I actually do not like Fountains but I am a stickler for rules. Maybe you need to get yours out of Mike F's
