For your information, the bottom is EXACTLY the same as you get on a production boat from Fountain. Only the deck is different, as is with the OL. Also someone mentioned that Reggie was ready to run 190, well not in the same boat. That boat now has 525's in it and will be run in the super V series this year with Little Reggie and Mike Seebold in it. It has been run at 107 so far with sealed engines. Testing continues to get it better. Roger

RF mentioned that they had to back off the sticks a sec during the 177mph run to get the water to flow up into the motors...they would get hot quickly.
Said he saw 180's on the GPS and still had some left in his wrist.
BTW, RF would be the only one I would ride with in a V at 180...the old mans still got it.

Totally ignoring brands and egos, that last run where RF hit 177 was scary to watch. That boat was riding high and loose and waiting for any excuse to lose it. It may have taken pure skill to get there but it was luck that he did not lose it.

It still confuses me that these boats competed for the same record. I think the boats should be of equal size and measure. It's like racing a top fuel car against a funny car in my opinion. 40 ft against 47 ft is a huge difference in my book, I think if they really want to compete for records they should be similiar size boats.

Kind of reminds me of a few years back in APBA when they were running a 36 ft. Skater against the rest of the fleet who were running 40ft + boats, no wonder they were winning every race except for the rough ones until the rules changed. Then again, OL could run their 39 against the 40 Fountain, now that would be an interesting challenge.
