DPT I'm not 100% on this but isn't Reggie only a employee of Fountain Powerboats, didn't he loose the company several years back. He had spent to much of the company's moneys on racing technology's and bankrupt the company. I think they are owned now by the Brunswick Co. isn't that Bayliner also great reputation they have. I remember reading that in powerboat magazine. Last time i looked a 37 year old guy Mike Fiorie owns Outerlimits. he must be doing something rite. I think Mike should just keep things the way they are, it seems to work for him.

DPT, i don't think mike is trying to sell race boats, he is trying to sell high dollar poker run boats, and this type of thing is important to somebody laying out 500k or 1M for a boat, its about bragging rights.... some of you guys are taking this too personally, this is about two guys with big egos, its not about racing or the better boat or anything, it is whoever can put two good engines, which neither one builds themselves, into a lightweight, severly limited use hull, and gets lucky with the weather, water and fate that day..... and nobody takes straight line speed seriously? tell that to the boats that show up for the LOTO shootout or numerous other radar runs around the country..... i see offshore racing fractured and dying and poker runs growing and thriving.... which builder is on the right path?

We saw the back of their boats at the finish lines and they saw the back of ours. There was PLENTY of competition & one of the CIGARETTES won the worlds with us in second (on one engine with a blown coupler).
As far as all the "OL guys" talking trash, I believe it is the other way around.
Finally, why on earth should Outerlimits (the factory) go racing???? They are booked over two years building boats that start around $350K. Do you think racing would be a good business plan?

I think the *****ing is because Reggie did it right, set the record at a santioned event. Mike posted a picture of a GPS.
