they are both badass way to fast boats for any regular mortal to ever be able to handle, it would be like selling f1 cars to the public. and taking em to the dragstrip,,

isnt this suppoesd to be fun

I agree w/ SummerO. you can take your sanctioning bodies and do what you want with them. the Lake Rescue Shootout was originally meant to prove or disprove a few people's "top end" speed claims. the Fountain vs. Outerlimit saga is nothing but a top end speed competition. so why not bring your fastest setup (whatever it may be) and see who walks away the winner? if you get beat this year, go back to the shop and make sure you don't get beat next year!!!!!!! what SummerO was referring to wasn't offshore racing world championships, it is about bragging rights to who has the fastest boat........period!!!!

I don't understand any of this sanctioning stuff and I don't see Reggie's point of view. This thread did not clear up my questions.

we missed scope last year but the year before the day before the p run we came back from newport around 5-6 pm,, Holy chit its the roughest i have been in.. (in a powerboat) got wet and our asses kicked in a 35 fountain.
we get back and everyone said u dumbazz u never leave newport after 2 or 3.. DOH!!!
quartering seas i bet the rollers were 5 footers with windchop on top of that,, tabbed, drives tucked and everyone holding on..
my buddy broke his back that year in a 38 formula about an hour before we went thru.. that chit is serious.. if u are in a race boat with wrap around bolsters, no passsengers, lifelines, helmets, choppers and medics that would be differnt...
phantom / nort do u remember that day when mike mcguire broke his back?
how bid would u say those were that day if u remember..

I hope this works

Fountain ran a Kilo run that was sanction by SBI

Outerlimits ran a speed run that was sanction by NPA (a poker run club)

Jonas......yep! I remember. Gary (Cig1) and I went out just after you, and we saw you guys out there. I broke a latch on my bathroom, but nothing else. It was pretty snotty out but I'm not sure how big. When we pulled in, you guys had just dropped off your buddy with the compressed back. He should have been standing (I understood he was sitting????).

got a question and a dumb one maybe but I don't know..........

Why didn't outerlimits just run an SBI sanctioned kilo just to set the record?

I hear people going back and forth about how the outerlimits run shouldn't count as the record since it wasn't sanctioned by a "race" type organization......just a little confusing to me.

You're missing the point .... it ain't about no stinkin' record

It's about who is the FASTEST !!!!
