I would rather have a 25 Outlaw, much bigger boat and better ride.

I had a 98 with 502 EFI and the boat did not ride good at all and if you wanted to go anywhere forget it, the tank to small for the boat.

I would rather instead look at the 29 Fountain.

I have a 1997 that is as good as new. It has new Fountain interior, brand new 509 cid motor approximately 650 hp. The outdrive was rebuilt a couple of years ago. The boat is in excellent condition. Please call me for more info. 301-370-1401 Jay

He wasn't asking for suggestions on other boats. He is looking for a 27 Fountain. Seems simple.

I guess it was the one that I had, just did not enjoy the boat, several disappointments. I thought it was a great boat also but after owning one, wish someone had told me the down side to them and would have 10k back in my pocket.

I agree the gas tank is way to small. Seemed like I was always putting gas in mine. Put a blower on top, then the tank became really small.

other than the tank size, I had no issues with my 27.
