I would probably take the 42' Fountain (has to be the Poker Run) It's a pretty cool boat. It has the nicest interior so far I've seen on a sit down V-bottom.

until you want to get rid of it...then the extra money you paid evaporates like H2o.

Yep... and the finish sucks too ... Lets see if they have an excuse at the Miami Boat show this year. I want to see no paint flaws... No excuses this year... There should be no paint flaws for that price.....

Yup, these powerboats are definetly overpriced for what you get when you buy, to what you get when you sell. For the same money, one would be kinda foolish to not take the big power in the 42. Then on the other hand, the OL would take a big loss in the resale, because of the stock 525's.
I'd have to go with the 42/1050's. Nothin against OL, they build a great boat, and they are all unique but, they are the king of being overpriced for what you get when you buy, to when you sell.
