Default Can anyone in Cincinnati help ?

Ok so I just picked up this Fountain and it was a repo so I have no history on it. I have talked with a couple guys from the area and no-one seems to know it.
1990 38' Fever
All I know is that it has up dated paint, Had Blower Motors in it, Seems to be well maintained, Has # 4 drives, Shows 150 hours on the meter. Had NH numbers on it at one time , Used to have RED LINE on the side to
The old owner was Ron Flint, out of Mason.

Just want some history on it , I keep coming up empty handed. Plus what happened to the power packages that were in it?

Sorry that one I don't know much about. I think I have seen it before but I don't know Ron. I am sure someone will have some info for you and I will ask around.

Nice Boat! Try Mike Jordan who owns Grand Prix marine located on Rt. 4 in Fairfield. Should be in the phone book. He is the main Fountain dealer in the Nati.
He is a racer also. Maybe he originally sold it.

Have you looked up Ron in the phone book?

Good luck!

Last I heard Jordan was out of business and moved to Indy. I don't believe he was ever the owner of the business. From what I heard, he lost his money man and the business folded.

Sorry can't help w/ the boat. Strange that I don't know it. Maybe he boated somewhere else???

Was on RT 4 yesterday Jordan and Grand Prix are gone for sure. I think I seen the boat on the river before but not sure. Never seen it on Cumberland maybe was an Erie boater. I know there in a 38 on Cumberland and the guy lives in Mason I have seen him on here before LPBoater and another 38 in Montgomery but it is a newer boat.

That's too bad. He was a cool guy. Any idea of how long ago he folded? I did get an update from family that a boat biz next to him folded - maybe two years ago. Maybe it was him or both of them. We know the Herns - as in Herns Marine. I recall my folks saying he wanted to sell two years ago. They know I'm a boat nut, but I said no way, I'm not into dinky fishing boats.
