" NOT every 35' Fountain is a POS" I think a lot of people here would argue against that statement.
Take it easy there scooter.
He was being sarcastic, notice the smiley face at the end of his post.

How about this...


"Don't buy ANY boat without a survey from a known, knowlegeable surveyor"

Barring that, caveat emptor.

The guy that owns the 35 in question is a nice guy, and a member on OSO. As far as I know, he bought the boat to keep it. He also wasn't told of the damage until I told him about it. I almost bought the boat but backed out at the last minute due to the history. Another OSO member informed me of its past.

I doubt the Mounties would let Mark into Canada. He's a little funny looking.
