I for one am having a VERY hard time believing that OL would drive from Rhode Island to NC without knowing what they had. Last time I checked there is water in RI. So why haul it all the way to NC just to turn around and go home? someone......anyone?????????

Exactly!

So obviously something had gone wrong that could not be fixed in the time allowed.....

--I did too.

At least they came down and I believe were ready to rumble.

The hype this weekend was great and enjoyed by most.

I think both Fountain & OL are equally getting some kissing up going on...

There they are definately in a tie in that race.....

Bottom line.

Fountain's race boats are the fastest Vee's currently, very fast.

........but Fountain has a LONG road ahead to catch up on quality and fit and finish. Most manufacturers are decades ahead of Fountain on building an overall boat for the pleasure market, which is where the money is.

99% of buyers aren't looking for a full canopy race boat, which is what Fountain is the BEST at building.

Most manufacturers are decades ahead.......you sure about that statement? There are some nicer finished boats out there for sure but most?????????
Fountain provides a very nice boat for a reasonable price. I will never own a new OL or a new cig but I may own a new Fountain. I know what I am getting for my money.Its a known quality....no surprises (for the most part)
I think Dollar for Dollar Fountain provides a great boat. If I feel I want or need a better boat I can always step up. Fountain provides a fast boat I can afford.....well almost

What DID happen back at the NY poker run when Reggy was coming up to KICK ASS ,,,,,, But never showed up ? Just asking........

As for them NOT running at the same event ,,,, WAKE UP YOU FOOLS !!!! I can't beleive no on efigured it out yet !!!

They are NOT GOING TO !! Look at all the publicity it is drawing ! If they actualy ran at the same time , IT WOULD BE OVER !

I'll bet Reggy and Mike already worked it out to keep this going as long as possible . It is GREAT for buisness ! And remember ANY publicity is GOOD publicity !

And the idea that they should have an extra motor for the event ..............
LIke they said , If the event went as squeduled , Reggy was not ready either .

How many of you race guys take an extra motor to a race ?

How many of you poker run guys travel all the way across the coutry to a poker run and bring extra engines ? how about extra drives? Or even PROPS ?????

I'll bet not many .

I can agree with this one here, since I know someone that was at the NYC poker run, and the big hear say was that Reggie was coming, and he didn't show. Neither here nor there, it was just hear say, so I can't bet on that one since I didn't get that from the horses mouth. As far as all the comments and speculation being made on these 9 pages, the entries coming from RiggerJohn and myself are the facts, and are coming straight from the horses mouth. There sure is a lot of judgment being made on that something had to have gone wrong, when it has been well defined here that this was not the issue at hand. Believe it, these guys with money traveling across country do carry extra engines, props, and drives. Most everyone on here can't relate to this since they aren't running with the big dogs anyway. I think it is great that another world record was set, it just raises the bar as Mike Fiore had mentioned earlier. I can't wait for the anticipation to set in again for the real show down.
