Go ahead and buy both and test them for a week or two. I'll take which ever one you don't want to keep.

Not trying to stir up anything, just trying to learn more. Why is there a big price difference? Is it the way they are fabricated? OL using the vacuum method is it? Is that the only reason or is there more? Like I said I am not starting chit just want to know.

Think you are getting confused here...hey babe, you want a fountain, or do you want to go to the outer limits!!

construction materials and methods, rigging, engine choice (most fountains are stock power, most OL's are not..) are your biggest difference... comes down to time and materials.

check out the rigging / finish / engine compartment..... much finer attention to detail. Oh ya - and an Oulterlimits 42 is actually 42 feet!!!!

Gotta throw in here. Love racing old V's nothing out handles old school. Recently purchased a 38 Fountain SV. Never really paid much attention to them. Race it with 525's at over 100 mph, you can put it in a turn at 100 like it's nothin. Never race an OL, can't comment there. But the Beak Boat does handle well. Even in the rough. Smitty
