He He....sad but true. You O.L pickle lickers should
do your math before you make an a-hole comment like
that. As far as Cig goes,didnt they make like 10 boats
a year in the for most of the mid 90's? I'll take a
correction if I'm wrong.

I'm sure Ross Perot could buy most any boat he wanted. He buys Fountains. Does that mean he's foolish, has no taste or lacks wealth?

How about Bush's Fountain Fish boat? Guess he's not worthy either????

Somehow, I think not.
I sold Ross both his 42's

I might get on that one year plan to I'm getting bored. And Jimmy's boat is as fast as yours 10 per minute on the lift.
Sorry cheap shot bt you know I had to go there.

Better yet, how about using Boattrader.com as part of your calcs.............I'll wait.

approx 106 2000 or newer

of which:

1 was a Not-Tech dealer advertizing the dealership

5-6 were Fountain cruisers

1 was a CC

1 was a cuddy fish

1 was a Fountain/Scism

A few were multiple listings

and one was a Sunsation?


Think what you want. Check Trader if you want. Look at the # sold of any performance boat. How is it Fountain compares so poorly? For sale #s mean nothing without looking at percentages. I have no problem with Outerlimits it just the quality of some of the owners that is questionable.

Bad news dude... Marina called... They said the OL got struck by lightening and they're pretty sure the rest of the electronics are fried. Better get on the phone with hunster and have him overnight the rest of the stuff. They also said one of the big boats was blown over by a 60 mph wind gust and fell on top of the Concept.

180. is what percent of 1700.?
Result
The first step is to write 180. as a fraction of 1700., which is simply

180/1700

Now we need to multiply the numerator and denominator of the fraction by 1 to get rid of the decimals :

180/1700 = 180/1700 x 1/1 = 180/1700

In order to find the simplest form of the fraction 180/1700 we cancel out the greatest common divisor of 180 and 1700, which is 20 :

180/1700 = 9/85

Now we just need to convert this fraction to a percentage :

9/85 = 10.5882%

So we have the final answer :

180. is 10.5882% of 1700.
