Agreed! But the chit wad haters will drag this out forever.

It's the "why" of the whole drag it out that puzzles me. Why would you want to see any biz go down? Why would you want to see any individual lose their job? Why would you want to see an man that has been so dedicated to what he does lose it all? Why would you want to see a part of a sport you participate in fail?

Only thing I can figure is they're "Chit Wad Fountain Haters".

I havent even read this thread at all, but this last post grabbed my attention.

Why you ASK,
Jealousy what else could it be. People LOVE to beat down the guys on top!

Its nothing personal usually, And doesnt matter who it is but if your on top for too long a beat down is coming your way soon.

Its human nature.

Why is the 525 as much as the 700 boats?

I was thinking the same thing... But all of Shogren's 700 boats look like great deals.

If Hustler or the Oxford group owened it there would be more money and more jobs with Reggie still the CEO/CFO there isnt any money to hire people. Reggie can build boats but cant do math.

If Outerlimits was going under all the Fountain fans would have put this thread to 50 pages of OL bashing. About how he shouldn't have tried to beat Reggie.

If and it's a big if Reggie makes it he should build some new boats that don't look like the same boats he has been building for 20 plus years. Maybe a true Fountain fan can tell what year or around what year the boat is but they all look the same from the water line up to me. There are almost 800 Fountains for sale on Boattrader.com he needs to change it up some so he has a better place in the market.
