Fountain makes their run on their HOME course. Unlimited supply of help, parts, and equipment. ON A RIVER! Rivers flow. Just a bit of an advantage, don't ya think. Secrets! I believe Mercury Racing was founded on the basis of secrets. Lake X carries alot of secrets. Let these two companies fight it out for V speed supremecy. Fountain can't stand to lose.

I would like to see a speed run with stock 525's that would truely show the better more efficent hull design.

The closest large airport would be in Lexington KY. There is a decent size airport in Somerset just no commercial flights. Lexington is going to be about an hour and a half away. The site says they are running in fishing creek which is a large tributary. The commercial marina closest would be Lee's Ford Marina. They have places to stay and you should be able to goggle up some info. SIGN4BOAT may be going to watch you could PM him he lives just west on Lexington.

There will be history made, one way or another.

They ought to do this run in the main lake down between Jamestown Marina and the dam. That end is much cleaner. Plus, that way I could get out there to see it!!!

I feel the this contest for fastest V is great.

However if OL is really going to do some secret run without inviting Fountain. That is the most disrespectful piece of chit company. I form this opinion over the fact that they talk so much chit then when it came time to put up or shut up the world saw what happen, OH yea it was at Fountain and Reggie did invite them to run at his expense. If OL cannot show the same respect back, then it just proves what type of company they are.

Morning.

Just a thought-

It is a fact that a boat is faster in saltwater because the density of the water is higher. Does anyone have any info regarding this (REAL INFO!)? So, if that is true, why would OL not run in there own backyard. It is obviously colder, too.
