Benefits are there, but will the customer accept it, or is it "gotta have it" power?

I'm sure a call to Fountain's customer support would provide answers to these questions. I may give them a call.
Can anyone confirm or deny if the steps have been moved or changed to accomodate the stagger set-up in this new 35' model?

There are several: that seems prett much in line with tests in Boating Magazine for large outboard powered boats, including Intrepid and other lesser names that I can't remember (why bother remembering inferior products)

Back in 1999-2001 when Factory 2 was the hottest class going The 35 Fountain and Formula were the boats to race. The 35 Fountain Lightning's out ran the 353 Forumlas in rough water every single time. There was some very close racing back then.

If this is all true? I can go 103 mph in a stock 35 with 525's and get a 5 year warranty! Prove it! Fountain Dealers show me the speed and I'll show you the money! Buyafountain chime in and will take a ride!! (FOR SALE 2006 sunsation SS 85 mph at wholesale) I could catch that 46 cig with triple 525's that keeps passing me. Be worth every penny

Does Skip Braver(insert any other Co. owner name here if needed) have a polygraph attached to his wrist everytime he talks about his boats?

Fountain sells the most, does the most [email protected], and quite often wins the most races. Sounds pretty impressive to me.

Technology gets better every year, and a lot of older heavier boats will get stomped on as a result.

Just the way it is.

Nope, that is wrong. They actually went 107. Just in case, 103 is 24/7

Call Shogren, he'll work it out.
