I love the passion for boats!
Only in America!

No matter what boat, keep it safe and fast.
thanks

Personally I don't think you can go wrong with either boat. I'd take the Sun myself. The only think I don't like about the sun is the dash. I to agree with pull my trigger. Why would sunsation make such a great boat then put sutch a cheap looking dash in it. To each there own.

I could tone it down a bit and not come off so harsh but nobody bothers when talking about a Fountain, so get the whole truth

I was under the impression that a 33 PowerPlay was a "real offshore boat"

Ever seen the dash?

I don't find what Susation has done CHEAP looking at at all. Look at the R and D needed to design and build a glass layout like that to house gages you can actualy see when running.

Unlike Fountain who just bolts them to a flat piece of aluminum (or whatever) and then bolts that the boat. You can't even see some of the gages the way they are placed behind the wheel. Is that how real off shore power boat is suposed to be? Or is that how the OLD ones are?

Again, my opinion, but what Sunsation does I don't believe is cheaper than what Fountain does! But if you don't like the look, fair enough, but calling it cheap looking, nope. Just new!

I would agree with you 100%. I hate the dash layout on an otherwise awesome boat.
