No sense in letting any important information get out ahead of time...

Question Re: Kilo Time!!!! Outerlimits vs Fountain

Damn!!!

Did this thing get punched in the nose or what?

The nose of that boat looks swollen!

That is one big beak!

With the beak stretched out so long and the transom cutaway for a shorter running surface and to allow more water to the props, with a best guess, how long would you think this boat really is ?

I haven't looked at a Fountain up close lately, but do the stock models have such a wicked notch in the transom such as shown here in the red area?

I hear that there will be a few teams sitting out the kilos due to questions regarding the accuracy of the scales being used. Most teams know their boat weight to within a few pounds - they aren't real happy about being told that they are 200 pounds "off".

I had heard 2 weeks ago from a good source...180 MPH is a "done deal"! Heard that Hull changes for the production line are coming up soon too. Anyone else hear that?

Reggie takes this s*** seriously.

MORE TO COME TOO! It's just a matter of cajone's.
