You can drop a Fountain off a ten story building and not have structural cracks as long as it lands on the BECK. That is what it is there for, to add strength.

Come on now, this boat is PERFECT. It is actually a little faster even.

Take a look at this Fountain pictured. It is back on the water with new paint running 155 MPH!
Doc,,,,, how did they get that tree to grow out of the deck?

I agree, if you have a real good fiberglass man that knows his stuff that you can trust, then you should be okay.

Dave Turner down in Jacksonville, Florida is the best I have ever seen. If he tells you it can be fixed and trouble free, then I would not worry.

Here's a few more Fix-R-Uppers.

Its UNBELIEVEABLE what happened to that Baja.

What were they thinking?
At the very least, they should have placed the boat trailer on the transporter first. Then placed the boat on its trailer. Rear tie downs could have also made that a better day.

If I'm not mistaken, it was a brand new 40 Outlaw.
