Don't step a side, step up and buy the 38. You know I don't have any interest in a Fountain.
No, it is the one in classified that has no images yet they are asking $169,900.00 and the guy said it was a tender for a ocean going boat. They said the guy who owner the boat had way to much $ to throw around. Said he had the reciepts from merc for over $30,000 were they got freshen up.

So why would you buy 6 more motors from Ron?? After the first two allegedly failed, WHY would you purchase boats with six more of his motors ??? Perhaps there was owner negligence on your behalf with the first two motors! I had the opportunity to do business with Ron Potter, and have spoken to many of his customers, past & present, and I have only heard praise. He is an honest and diligent businessman. and his work ethic sets the Benchmark for the industry. Sir, Grind Your Ax Elsewhere.

Jeff, I'm glad Frank got that out of the way. I have to say your 43' NT is one of the best looking boats I have ever seen. The only change I would make is a pair of these pushing your #6's !!!!
