I agree. It seems some on OSO have a real problem with Fountain.Originally posted by StrikinLightnin
But seriously I boat with people
with CIGS and Formulas.
Just depends what your likes are.
I've had fountain's for over ten years
and feel that they're a really fine boat.
Get really tired of all the negative crap
said about them on this board though.

Try owning a Baja
After owning a Fountain
Then you'll return to a CIGARETTE! They don't call it a Legend for Nothing!
leg·end ( P ) Pronunciation Key (ljnd)
1. An unverified story handed down from earlier times, especially one popularly believed to be historical.
a. A body or collection of such stories.
b. A romanticized or popularized myth of modern times.
2. One that inspires legends or achieves legendary fame.
3.An inscription or a title on an object, such as a coin.
a. An explanatory caption accompanying an illustration.
b. An explanatory table or list of the symbols appearing on a map or chart.
[Middle English, from Old French legende, from Medieval Latin (lcti) legenda, (lesson) to be read, from Latin, feminine gerundive of legere, to read. See leg- in Indo-European Roots.]
Usage Note: Legend comes from the Latin adjective legenda, “for reading, to be read,” which referred only to written stories, not to traditional stories transmitted orally from generation to generation. This restriction also applied to the English word legend when it was first used in the late 14th century in reference to written accounts of saints' lives, but ever since the 15th century legend has been used to refer to traditional stories as well. Today a legend can also be a person or achievement worthy of inspiring such a storyanyone or anything whose fame promises to be enduring, even if the renown is created more by the media than by oral tradition. Thus we speak of the legendary accomplishments of a major-league baseball star or the legendary voice of a famous opera singer. This usage is common journalistic hyperbole, and 55 percent of the Usage Panel accepts it.
I have a 357 sr1 formula, twin 420 hp mercs, TRS drives actually LOA is 38' because the swim platform is not counted in the length, (but how could you not count it...)
Has more room and freeboard so it handles 8-10 footers with ease, has all kinds of comforts for weekending, runs 68mph and will hold resale value for years...truly the gentlemans performance power boat. Just my 2 cents
Tricky919, thats a good post.
Fountain holds the upper hand in performance in most water conditions, although it is getting closer. The Top Guns are picking up speed and now you have the Gladiator. Formula's fit and finish rates up there too. Formula's are just not for the "Gold chain wearing kinda guys"
like I said...after running out to Block Island from Providence, or out to Nantucket I might want to watch a dvd on the flat screen while I sip a nice single malt scotch on the rocks and in the morning I'll brew up a nice pot of coffee to start the day...you wont find any Bud Light on this boat
you got that right Troutly... how you doin? how come its gotta be so cold in the winter anyway?
i bet you back in the day don got alot more a$$ then reggie!!!
i now think the beak is a phallic symbol artificially adding to reggie's... um, stature
