I have to aggree with much of those comparisons. But I own a 99' Baja and comparing it to a Mustang is a little low on the list. The fit and finish is way nicer than alot of the boats you guys are using in comparison. I have buddies with Cigs and fountains and if you compare year to year those boats look real dated. Oh and I just beat my friends 42 fountain with my 36OL. I give him **** every day. Thats funny!

The OL would be more like a Lambo. Lower production, not as recognized, yet coveted by a an exclusive group of people who want to be a little different and unique.The Fountain would be the Corvette. Outstanding performance from a high production company at a reasonable price.
WOW!! pm203, I actually agree with you
You pretty much much hit the nail right on the head.
