Not going bankrupt in the boat building business IS an accomplishment. Cigarette has done it 6 or seven times. NOT KNOCKING THEM. Just telling it like it is.

F-N-IGuy.com,

You now, when you look at the history of boat compaies, especially performance-boat companies, you're probably right.

Been into these things since I was 4 or 5 years old. It's a fact. I know Reggie personally and the ONLY reason he is still in business is because he is THAT determined to win and NEVER, EVER stops working.

When you start to make a list of the companies that have and have not ever gone bankrupt building boats, the list of the HAVE is longer than the have not.

That's exactly right! Reggie is King and not a sellout!

SEC listing doesn't impress me... I don't know of any Wall Street traders who buy/sell Fountain stock as an investment... I might buy a little stock if I were a Fountain owner, to support the cause, but it ain't gonna make me rich. Being public can actually hurt them, they're probably better off not being publicly traded. Then we would only hear about how they sell boats, making Cat Killers etc.,, not about profit loss/margin... LOL

If Reggie wanted to throw in an other $9million, he could take them private. The Market cap is only $18million, and he already ownes control

Did I understand correctly there is no money for race teams anymore? Is that the reason there are so many Fountain Race Boats for sale this year?
