Default Fountain 24CS

May be trading one in.I seem to vaguely remember that it was kind a strange boat,never sold well and is now discontinued. The boat is super clean. Are there any issues with this model that should trouble me? There are none for sale on OSO and only 2 on Boattrader. I got one for a customer back about 94 and ran it a little,seemed like a neat little pocket rocket,but I remember it was really small.Any opinions ?

Strangely enough,one of them on Trader lists a "factory installed ski pole". And apparently they had a water ballast system also. I had forgotten about that.

Are you a dealer??? they way it's worded it sounds like you were taking it IN on trade for something else. If you've got pics and other details (incl'd price) I may have a buyer...

Yes,I am a Formula dealer,he is trading it in on a 271.Will have it next Monday. He showed me lots of pics today,appears to be super clean,low hour freshwater boat always stored inside. But I don't want this thread to turn into an ad,only wanted input on the model. Shoot me an e-mail if you like. Robert

This was Reggies ski boat designed back in 1992 or 3. It ran mid to upper 70's with a 502 mag back then. 17 degree pad v hull, sit down seats and a water balast tank up front. very small boat and really low slung. Total lake rocket.

Being there are none around, I would guess that some young guy will buy an entry Fountain boat for the lake.

Hey Wrink! I never knew you were so smart, I did not know that.
