"you gonna drive like a fool - you gonna get hurt like a fool!" - Reggie Fountain

I'll tell ya - I bust on Fountain all the time but I say good job on this video. If all go fast boaters watched that video there would be alot more smart people on the water because we all know there are LOTS OF PEOPLE ON THE WATER WHO KNOW EVERYTING...(about nothing)

Both Sandy and I watched the video. I wish every manufacturer took the time to educate the buyer before the sale. Streamline on how every hull is checked with a straight edge which is basically being blueprinted is how he stays on top in the speed department. I was also unaware that Fountains steps are air rated, I think this is also a great plus. I believe Outerlimits is the other manufacturer that does this as well. I also apprieciated the check for no hook in their notch transom, all this adds to why Fountains hulls run the way they do. I give credit where credit is due, good job Fountain. I'm not to arogant to say, that you can always learn something. I especially liked the diesel/surface drive segment, as well as docking, I thought very informative, Thanks... Jeff

I liked the beginning of the "Preparing for the water" segment. It is essential that you have three girls such the ones pictured on your boat in bikinins.....before you start boating.

I bought a 32 Fever with 502s back in 93. There production was like 150 boats a year then and Reggie went for a sea trial with everybody who picked there boat up at the factory(i hear he still does sometimes). It was one of the best hands on learning experiences i've had in a boat. We were given race suits and helmets with intercoms. He even put me on the pier at his house and did a drive by so i could see the proper running angle on the boat. Then we went to lunch and he even had a reserved table at the Golden Corral in Washington N.C.
