Default Story behind Fountain/Scism Mti Cats

I am not want to start a hornets nest here but didn't Fountain make a few 42 Cats back in 2000-2002.

What was the deal with these cats, Did they perform OK?? Did Fountain just use the mold, Joint Venture?? Just looking for info??

Thank

WILL

Yes and Fountain was useing the Scism molds, Saw boats in the molds and completed ones at the Factory.

I believe this was until Scism got a building and space to do this himself and Also at the time Fountain was playing around with this joint Venture.

Are you bored today Will

Didn't you here. Reggie decided V's were faster so there was no need to offer a Cat

Hope all is well at SML

If I can find the old ad touting the Fountain/Scism partnership, I will post it here. Very ironic that a few short years after the partnership disolved that Reg now calls himself the Cat Killer. The self-promoting ad was written in quite a different tone
