I respect Fouintain for giving the most mph/$$.. translated bang for your buck.. it's the Corvette of offshores ...OuterLimits is the one to be in if you have the $$.

I like the new Black Thunder..or NorTechs...Formulas

Quite frankly now that the offshore world is one of 100+ mph boats...a Douglas Skater is on my wish list.

Everything in offshore boating is a comprimise...as our old buddy used to say.
Dude, you just named virtually every manufacturer...just buy one already

Absolutely...those kind of packages and prices are what makes Fountain tick.

Not bad for a 30 ft'er! They throw in the beak and swim platform as a bonus!

Umm, I went for a ride in one of those fountain type boats over the weekend, Best ride I have been on in a while it was pretty fast as well, who knew you only had to turn on the third engine when you wanted to break 100mph.Pretty Nice

Beak is a ft (I measured it) The beak argument is b/s.
Look at the rake in the nose of a 42 Tiger to the water
line. Does that mean its only 39ft?
