It's all BS and you guys know it. If my memory serves me correctly...last year they (Fountain) reported that they sold 17 million at the Miami show.

But....according to their annual report, they sold 20 or 22 million for the entire quarter!! What happened, did they basically take the rest of the quarter off????
I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

They did have an area behind the glass to do deals and when I went by all the desks were full with dealers and people. I think it was Regie in his racing pajamas that hooked everyone in. If he was a little more humble, lost the bling and didn't were the pajamas, I think he would sell even more boats.

I was personally at the Fountain booth and they had allot of dealers there and were ready to talk. That # could be correct if they include the dealer orders. Personally the #s I was quoted at the show were 80K higher than you could buy a brand new Fountain on dealer websites. So take that for what you want.
