You Fountain guys kill me .I cant stop laughing !Too funny! Just remember, We didnt start it.By the way,I owned a 40 Fountain with 700 horse Zuls.I loved that boat but decided it was time to get a Cig. Also,at the Fort Lauderdale boat show in 03,at the Cig booth,Reggie came by and could not take his eyes off the Gladiator.Skip was showing him the new Stealth 46 and Reggie was not interested.He was more into that Gladiator. Anyhow,Fountain or Cigarette,either way, you cant go wrong.

What about Pier 57 dropping Fountain and picking up Cig, any relation to these other goings on?

There are people on this board that would criticize Noah's boat building skill.

Another thing: I don't know how this got to be a Cig bashing thread, but I'm gonna say this once more. Ferrari, Rolex, Harley, Cigarette, Rolls, etc..... There is only one of each of them. The honor is not of their own doings. You can try as hard as you wish, but you will never bump them out of their place. Example: Suzuki GSXR vs. Harley Soft Tail. 171 mph vs 116 (ring a bell?) Ever visualize General Patton on a GSXR? I don't think so, Tim!

This is almost as classic as Ford vs. Chevy, Mercury vs. OMC etc. I will say this, when a particular style of boat is recognized by one name (A Cigarette Boat, much like when someone asks for a Coke, when they're just referring to a soda) that speaks volumes. I was really partial to Ben's following quote;

“This is a big move for me!” said Robertson, “Reggie and I have known each other for 35 years, but I was ready for a change. It’s exciting to be leaving an industry leader and going to an industry giant.”

No BS - Straight from the man himself!

I'm drooling all over my keyboard looking at this flat deck. Go to the owners website link. There is a large file of pictures.

Fountain owners converting are a dime a dozen. New task for you eager young reggie lovers: find a cig owner converting to fountain. Have fun.
