Well, just a quick check in the old OSO classifieds and as usual there are a lot more beaks than Baja's for sale..

56 Baja's
116 beaks

Thats better than a 2 : 1 ratio

So as far as the seeing them everywhere claim of yours, yes I see Fountains everywhere...

Isnt Reggie building bajas now ? you wont buy a
chev,ford, or what ever car or truck because they
look the same.
Maybe Reggie bought them because it was the one
of the leading selling boat company and one of the
first performance boat companies out there.
If it were me I would bring baja back to Ohio
and let the pros keep building them.
Doug Smith and all the ohio employees !!!!
Ill take the first 40 footer they make !
