Might help to indicate the brand as well as range of size and price you wish to buy in, top shape or a project, there are loads of deals out there right now. I would think if you defined your search data you might come up with some real deals here.
Good point, but you never know what you can afford until you find what you really want.

This boat is in very nice shape and the low price does not reflex the condition. The small blowers are not as efficient as the big one and they do not look as good and that is the reason they were changed. The mercury blower can be reinstalled if anyone desires.

Looks like confirmation from the man himself.

If I was a fountain guy, I would be calling you on it.

Good point as well, but in reality if more folks had actually figured out what they could afford before they bought it, there would be far fewer killer deals out there right now.

I can vouch for this 42' as well. I know the previous owner that traded it into us and it was maintained with an open wallet by a man that manages a Cummins dealership. He knows boats and even better maintence. At the listed price, it is being given away.

The concensus is Fountain is best dollar for dollar so if you want a deal, Fountain might be the way to go. As you already know, ORCA is back in service with 2 fresh bullets from Mark Rinda @ MER and I'll take cash, trades, or what have you and I'm realistic enough to know that I'll never get back the money I spent so dollar for dollar you might get the deal you are looking for. PM me if interested.

I talked to Mark for a while about that boat. Sounds like you had a really rough time with it.

That boat used to run pretty strong. I always hated the paint. If I had that boat, it would have to go to the paint shop.

That's pretty good.

Looks like a pretty clean boat. Would make a good lake throw down boat.

Cost me 2K to get it here from VT though.

He's down to 7500.
$2000? You are complaining about $2000?
You sure you're in the right sport?

Sometimes it seems like you don't care what you're running, as long as its the best deal which you can find.

Sorry, in this game, IMO, its all about what you're running...
$$ don't matter. And it doesn't have to be big $ to be cool out there... just your matter of choice.
