OL should simply stick with building nice fast boats for well-heeled customers.
That is their "niche" . . . . it's no BAD niche, but leave the RACING to Fountain.

No disrespect to OL . . . . at all. . . . No one disputes that an OL is fast . . .

Just not fast-EST.

ok not trying to start the pot. but why doint ol put the same motors in ther boat that reggie had, in his and out run him . you can allways put more hp and go fast. but do it with the same motors. THEN we will see WHO is the fastest. reggie had 1550 hp level the playing field then it might mean somthing , till then it is jest CHECK BOOK RACING . so what.

How about a 39' OL w/525 efi's against a 42' Lightning w/525 efi's? Would that be fair or should in be a 38' Lighning for a level playing field?

I say who cares who goes 180 mph+ because %99.999 will never own a boat that does that...How many people are going to buy a boat from a company solely based on a speed record anyway?

And make them the same weight and don't let them sneak into the motors before the run. That would be a true test of hulls. It ain't going to happen
