Johnny the 32 Fountain is a great boat. I have really enjoyed mine. It comes from the factory with all the little performance goodies (k-planes, hydraulic steering, full complement of gaffrig gauges, electric bolsters etc.) as part of the package. You don't have to add anything...unless you want more power! I like feeling like I am part of a rich racing heritage. You can't watch a boat race without seeing a Fountain of some type either in front or near the front. Fountain has virtually all the v-bottom speed records which makes for fun "bench racing" with your pals. It's kind of like owning a chevy and living off of Jeff Gordon's triumphs. The boat is rock solid. I added a couple of drink holders last year and broke a drill bit off in the cockpit trying to mount them! I'm telling you these boats are tough. As far as the size goes, I posted on another thread recently that the 32 is just big enough to take on some pretty rough water and just small enough to be able to trailer without a 2500 or 3500 series truck. As far as the wife goes...the Fountain will get you a girlfriend! Good luck.
