Shogren is reselling the boat he sold me, 2003 Fountain 38 EC twin 500 EFI's and I had to get rid of it. This boat was sold and used in saltwater for a year when new. I was told by my insurance company that It was smashed in hurricane Ivan and the insurance completely totalled it. It was declared salvaged at that time. I ended up with it and while owning it, it half sunk at the dock . The engines and generator, etc were all underwater. A surveyor and local dealer also thought the hull was cracked. Beware unless you get the history from Shogren since I did not. Feel free to contact me for any history I know.. It's a shame that a dealer who is well aware of all these problems are allegedly hiding them yet again. GET A SURVEY on this one !!!!

Well, it does cost money to clean one up that sunk.
Some people are like Slinkies - Not really good for anything, but they
bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
Dodgeman111 - when did you and Scott undo the deal? I read the ad
twice and looked at all the pictures. The boat looks all cleaned up
and has some cosmetic changes. Did the engines get damaged when
it sunk in your slip? No where does it say one owner fresh water only.
Were you made whole in this ordeal? I hope you can get another
big boat and have fun in 2012.
We are hiding absolutely nothing and we have even shared with consumers the pictures of Mr Chad Davis boat when he drove on rocks at LOTO and pictures Mr Davis sent us when his bellows melted and he partially sunk boat at LOTO (2 different incidents). We were asked to REPO the boat a few weeks back which we did for the bank with the assistance of a reputable dealer at LOTO. We are un-aawre to this day and so is the previous owner (prior to Mr Davis) who is on this board of the boat ever being salvaged. We have asked for proof of this after claims by Mr Davis and have yet to see any. Mr Davis stirred up quite the thread over this once before and we went as far to tell Mr Davis we would buy the boat back on a public forum because some members suggested it. What we would not agree to is buying it back for more than he paid for it (negative equity). We do not want our business to be dragged thru the dirt over this. We have an open door policy on all our boats and you can survey them mechanically or structurally at anytime. This customer has made many attempts to threaten me and my company with lawyers, BS text, nasty emails and ask us to write up a fraudulent insurance claim, etc. We do the best we can everyday in a tough industry and have NEVER hidden anything we know about a boat that we have sold. Is it possible that a consumer has traded a boat in from time to time and not told us everything about the boat, of course it is but that is not the majority but rather the minority of customers. Mr Davis, I am sure you are upset you lost your boat but trying to stir up negative threads to try and drag someone or a business thru the dirt because you lost your boat and the bank asked us to get it and sell it for them is pretty low at best. We did not drive it on the rocks nor did we melt the bellow or keep driving the boat until it partially sunk.
OK both sides in the story have posted this is the last thread about this.
