Default Tree Climbing Fountain spotted

This just as information to fellow OSO member.

Last year I did a Poker Run in Canada and talked to a gentelmen who had bought the Fountain that had climbed a tree down South after throwing it's operators.

I saw the boat yesterday in a Montreal marina on the water it had been "repaired". Same paint. I did not have my camera so no pics. There are not many 42 Fountain's in the Montreal area and I am positive it was the boat, from the talk I had with the guy last year.

So if someone gets a deal on it at least you are informed.

Happy Fourth to all.

I can't believe they actually fixed that boat. That is unreal.

It's hard to believe that it would be economical to strip it, replace the hull and re-rig it.
