looking at it from an industry perspective, boat to boat, 1 off rig to rig, and build quality, it's simply a matter of taste. blonde or brunette. i have run both boats. rough or flat. have rigged both fountain's and ol's. have a sincere passion for both. 2 great friends own each of them.

here's one

the other is an 05' o.l 42 with 12oo sterlings.

Both boats same power? I'd have to take the Fountain, I'd rather be out in front.

The point of the thread is to say, OL blows Fountain into the weeds on Quality, Sex Appeal, Rigging etc. - but we have to ditch the reality aspect of the comparrison by removing the money from the equation. Another attempt by the OL devoted to say Fountain sucks and lets start some poop. But we all know OL is ridiculusly over priced, which is why you have to take reality out of the poll in order to have a poll. If you optioned a Fountain out with a 50 - 100k paint job, McCloud seats, Sterling power Custom Dash and Cockpit Cowel you'd match the OL and still have lot's of cash left over. You know, $ for stuff like a trailer, truck to pull it, gas for a few years along with storage and maintenance. The Fountain is faster, more reasonably priced and an overall better value. The boat I bought this winter was set up by Reggie and the guy who set it up paid extra for that. It was still loads cheaper and is rigged flawlessly. It can be had for a realistic price if you want something more than the base boat. Oh yea, a base boat that kicks serious butt and is far from junk.

But you are right, the poll was for two identical boats, so I picked the faster one, the Fountain. (please note the folks trying to change the poll by mentioning a different OL that they hope could compete on speed - even think they started a whole new thread on it) If I wanted drop dead stunning, well laid out kick a$$ looker - everyone knows you get a Cigarette...

Click on this for a Fountain that got the OL treatment for 200k less and runs 145 +
http://216.223.162.33/onesite/publis...%2042%20Custom

and it's not even a Poker Run set up. By the way, since everyone is slamm'n the beak on length, perhaps the correct comparrison to the 39 GTX is the 42 Poker Run.... And there would end that story.....
