I was in the same "boat" as you a few months ago. After a lot of looking and riding/driving both I went Fountain as well. Not that the Sunsation isn't a great boat- it is. Sunsation is also built right here in MI near Algonac and obviously their customer service is second to none... so you definitely couldn't go wrong with one. In the end though, the Fountain was a more stable hull at speed (as others have mentioned) and the fit/finish is definitely nicer in the Fountain. I just knew that as soon as I went with the 32.. I would want a 35. Plus, so far, I have had great experiences with Tony at customer service with Fountain. I picked up a 2000 Ex w/ 500EFI's and have been very happy with it.
