A 35 Fountain is lot shortter than a 36 Baja. By about 3 feet.

I realize that. How would the 38 Fountain's ride compare to the 36 Outlaw?

In my opinion the 36 baja will out ride any fountain except the 42.

I'd take the 38 Fountain. Much better built and stout boat. Just gotta know how to drive them.

So the ride in a 36 Outlaw is comparable to the 38 Fountain?

no, the 36 rides better. i may be a little biased since i have one, but my friend has a 38 and they dont compare in the rough. his is faster though.

I had 2000 38 fountain with 500efis it ran 82-83 mph was a great boat,easly cruse at 55-60 I would buy another one.

I learned on here a couple weeks ago about how the Fountain beak creates some kind of special "lift" and a "Carolina Flair' type of effect in
Rough water. Allowing them to be the best rough water boats ever made.
In addition to be the best at everything else also....
The rest should just close shop.....

If your thinking about a 38 Fountain try this for price.
Talk about a smooth ride, this will blow both of them away.
