This one made me think.

1. 18 Renken
2. 18 Checkmate Eluder
3. 21 Eliminator O/B
4. 27 Fountain
5. 32 Fountain
6. 35 Fountain
7. 37 Outerlimits
8. 38 Fountain/600's
9. 38 Fountain/700's
10. 20 Hydra-Sport

Dispite my best efforts to keep Fountain's business thriving, I failed to do so.

I'm gonna stir it up here, but oh well. Having owned many diff manufactured boats, what was your all around favorite, as far as experience in general. Not the fastest, loudest, most comfortable, but rather, what delivered the best all around experience for an offshore boat? If you had to throw a dart at the list, which one would be the bullseye???

Maybe some of this goes to Tanks thread the other day. Looks like a lot of us got our start on sailboats so we understand them more then they understand us.
Put your best foot forward!
