Fountain will do certain things like seat placement to tall or short people and graphics and they will omit the forward bow rails for a sleeker look plus you can do either a t-top or arch. 4 300xs will put you well over 80 (around 85-87mph) with any type of load on a Fountain 38TE.What is it you want to change on the 38TE?

I think the beam is 9'6" on those boats. Looks like more beam than the Concept Ihad but notas wide as my Fountain. I like that they use hauz pipe and the cleats are down in the gunwale, the over all lines of the boat and the lay out and that it is a wider beam. Really good looking boat and a decent price too.

I agree that it has some nice lines on it. I wonder what a new one with triple 300XS would go for?

Yes a tad over 80 with 300's and their website will be up shortly after changing web designers mid way through the build. Let me know what pics you need and PM me your email address.
