Better Question is out of all those fountain boats for sale, how many are just upgrading to a better fountain?

You can also look at like this:

Most of the Outerlimits listed are 2000 or newer and @ 25 a year that is 175 boats and 39 are listed for sale.

Most of the Fountains listed are 1990 or newer and at 500 a year, that is 8500 boats and 180 are listed for sale.

22.3% vs 2.1% Even if you figure the Fountain production for that period was only 250 per year that is only 4.2%

I'm in no way a fountain fan. Not that there's anything wrong with them, they just aren't for me. But I don't see a lot of the fountain owners complaining about them on here. They mostly seem like proud boat owners like they should be. Dollar for dollar, i think they are a good quality boat with something to offer for people who are attracted to them. You know people who wear a lot of gold and like to pretend they are in the mafia. (j/k)

Seriously though, Reggie publicized a statement that is debatable, and I understand debating that. (I think he was wrong to make those statements) But I don't think that statement deserves all the fountain bashing that it has brought on.

just my .02

I know i know, next week I'll make a beak joke and everyone will repost this to me.

Sorry man, if you look at the numbers built vs the number forsale percentage wise there are a lot more OLs for sale.

Yes I own an Outer Limits and I can afford it just fine thank you for your concern. I'm not the one changing numbers just observing them.
