I have had experiences with Sundance. Sales staff A+++, service department F -. They were cocky and arrogant to me. They actually turned me away once because I didn't have an appointment for service.

Question...what do you mean by the outer edges too high?

Are you talking about the gunwales? If so I like that it is a little deeper thus safer feeling for me and my guests. I am extremely comfortable in this boat and that is only one of the reasons I sold my last boat for the Fountain 38TE.

thanks!

Yeah what he said. The x-dimension is way to high, if you use any tab input past parrallel with the running surface, the outer two props get blown out and cavitate. Also wants to cavitate in a following sea. All issues that can be resolved, but annoying none the less.

Why did you switch from a Yellowfin to a Fountain?

The Yellowfin was a great boat. but ours was older and would have cost too mutch to re-power with verados. thought we would go for a change, and try out the fountain. they agreed to build us the boat with quads, so we went for it.

The yellowfin was a bit light at high speeds, the bow flair would usually cause us to list hard in the windward direction when running at high spees, the fountain feels more stable at 72+ mph, but the Yellowfin was still a great boat, just lacked the creature comforts that we were looking for.

That's too bad. Sounds like the dealer isn't taking care of your problems. My pumps are wired direct and will come on with batteries off. Hopefully the dealer will stand up. You have a 1 yr warranty on everything. Get the bugs out and you should be good to go.

OL has occasional issues also. Here is a brand new 42 Legacy 850's and the fuel tank leaked. I can't imagine having the smell of gas thru-out the boat. Guess someone messed up when rigging. The floor had to be chop-sawed to access the fuel tank leaking problem, repaired and re-glassed. Hope they got all the debris out for the new owner because after spending 700+ the first owner dumped it. What a shame.

I'm guessing the bilge pumps weren't hard wired on Candy Shop. Hopefully OL replaced everything that was underwater. 3 1075's would be a hit, that's for sure. What a shame and one of my favorite boats

If the dealer isn't going to take care of you, call Shogren in Chicago, he would love to earn your business.
