My recemendation would be to get in contact with Craig Wilson. He runs Fountain Worldwide and can try and help you get things in the right direction. Boat is beautiful, hope they take care of you.

I would contact your dealer. Hard to tell what is going on from the pictures, but if it is gelcote you can probably have it polished out. The problem with colored gel is that it fades like that. Most of the time, they will clear over the gel to slow the process down, but it is going to happen. Stirring sh$t up here is not going to help you make friends at the factory. Be patient and try to work it out. Fountain took care of some stress cracks on my boat when it was seven years old. Keep in mind that stress cracks are not covered and it was way out of warranty.

So, first you're pissed at Fountain, for building a shoddy boat, now you're pissed at Phazar for posting your shoddy boat for sale??

OH - I get it. You want your boat advertized just not in a thread where your trying to leverage the company into fixing it's flaws....NICE!!

Try contacting Wyatt and see if he can point you in the right direction

That's too bad....Fountain puts out a awesome product, although I am very surprised that Reggie won't stand up behind his product????

So.... the boat needs fixing. But it is also for sale with NO mention of the gel coat problems? Or was that a different boat for sale?

If he was standing up behind his product you probably wouldn't see him.
