the donzi set up is nice in my opinion. seems like a good boat... i wouldnt want roller coaster seats in my sports car; at the same time i wouldnt want them in my sport boat!!??

LOL, I don't like the "prom date" seats either. It just doesn't seem, well, "right" I guess is the best word. Maybe I am a homophobe!

mustangs are a good bang for the buck, but i wouldn't confuse them with a serious sports car either.....

you can make a mustang fast like a ferrari, but it never will be one... it won't have the style, the quality, the image, the desirability or the rarity of a ferrari...

fountain is the same way, not a knock on fountain, they price and build their boats for a certain market....

boats and cars are no comparison. boats use mostly the same engines and outdrives. fountain powerboats is a publicly traded company. is there another powerboat company that can make enough and sell enough to be one? i dont know. a mustang probably doesnt hold the world speed record either or win the most races. (although i guess its possible since i didnt check the records) this thread started so that the oso community could share their thoughts and feelings on the new seating arrangements, mostly the "roller-coaster" style. in all seriousness.

I keep picturing 4 dudes rollin up in that boat, 2 in the front and 2 in the middle, and thinking they're the chit. Then all the girls start pointing and laughing at them cause they look like complete dorks! LOL

Bad azz boat but I do not like the seats. Put a three man bolster in the back and a fricken stripper pole in the middle, then you have something!
