be a good business move. Especially since Cig
hasnt won an offshore race since Don Aronow
was a teenager!! HA!!! put that in yer pipe & smoke
it!! . Love Rick!
Rick,
I heard that Skip was only going to keep the sport fish line and sell the rest of the Fountain product line to Bayliner.Seems they want to get into the performace boat business at a budget and the Fountain line is a perfect fit.

Come on dude, let it go..... Take a 38 Fountain and a chainsaw. Eliminate the beek and swim plattform and you have a 34 foot smooooooooth water boat.....

Also while your at it check www.boattraderonline.com and search fountains for sale and cigs for sale. Have fun!
