OK, so UIM is the sanctioning body. Fine, if you want an "OFFICIAL WORLD RECORD".

I'm talking about bragging rights for the fastest boat, same day, same venue. I could care less whether it's "Official" or not.

all in all the best to the foutains guys and any manufacturer that races or poker runs it's all good as long as we're boating and having fun.
EXACTLY! Having fun and being decent to your competitors is what normal people do, and I am glad to hear that is what you did. Not a surprise to hear Reggie wasn't gracious after wins or defeats, at least in congratulating or acknowledging his competitors.

I am so tired of this "pissing contest" bull****. Who gives a **** if Fountain or Outerlimits is faster? Personally, I think the competetion is great for our sport.
You guys friggin kill me like little b*tches when someone attacks your boat brand. Your arguing like kids about a stupid title. How many of us here on OSO can afford a 161mph boat and even handle that??? I venture to say MAYBE a handful of people here on OSO. I have a Powerplay, which everyone knows is a great boat, but the owner has a very bad reputation and alot is going on with them right now....especially on this board. I couldn't care to defend Dan or Powerplay given my experiences with him and his reputation.

Let's face it, powerboating is a very small sport and it doesn't seem to be gaining any more popularity. We ALL need to be more supportive and get our sport to new heights. You guys want to fight and battle it out??..how about fighting the manatee lovers or the tree huggers or something like that which is always attacking our beloved sport.

Neither wave is one that anyone on this board is going to run straight into at a high speed. Everytime I hear someone talking about 8 foot waves they were running in I want to get the bs meter but I don't know how.

8 feet is 8 feet everywhere in the world. Large
8 foot yes......100mph .........NO
