Fountain has more wins than all others combined. Comprende' ?
I also think they have the most broken hulls of anyone on the offshore circut combined.

ps.. I'm not knocking the Fountain pleasure boats at all. I just think Reggie builds his race hulls a little too light.

Exactly!!

You hit it right on!!!

You only forgot "I want to pay 1 mil for a 46' long Skater that holds 5 people and no room for anything else."

Most of us DON"T want to do that. Some do. More power to them. I like watching the big bad stuff as well.

Not my type of boating, but hey, let 'em rip.
Now, that said, when these guys kill our ability to go boating either through insurance costs, more regulations, etc., then I will have a different opinion.

I'm just glad everyone survived their ego trip.

Why do you guys always complain and worry about this and that? Do your thing and don't worry about others. If you don't like poker runs, don't go. If you don't enjoy going fast, buy a runabout.

If someone wants to spend $1,000,000 on a boat, that is his business. Whether it is worth the $ or not, is also his business and certainly not ours.

I personally enjoy going to poker runs and running WFO just to get smoked by an OL.

When it breaks he probably takes out his 65 ft Sea Ray and parties with his friends, or one of his other toys. I'm sure they talk about what boat to buy next and what paint they want. Probably not resale and how much insurance and gas cost, whats the fun in that?

Like the old saying goes, "don't hate the player, hate the game." I'm sure you would hate to be able to buy a $1 million boat (or 3) and not bat an eye.

That's why the new 39' OL Quattro is such a hit. 100mph on 525s with bravos.
