Man these beak joke's get old

I am not a big Fountian fan but I will say that is a very fast boat and has had no expience spared on up grades and or maintance and has always been kept like a fine jewel, the pics do it no justice at all. Just one walk around it and hearing its history would make anyone interested.
As far as the wasted space you guys like to go on and on about(beak/swim deck) I have been on TG/Cafe that offer no more room at all, the only difference I have really seen is in the freeboard and thats the only thing that would keep me from buying a Fountian.
If you want a fast overly well cared for boat that 35 is the answer.

Been in this one a number of times at 100+!

Ran a best of 110, if I recall. Shows close to new still from what I hear, rigging is over the top, previous owner spared nothing, great buy in my opinion.

Cig,

When was the last time you got a real good look at Kelly's "beak" ?


There are times in life that size just don't matter! Am I right here?

Ok I'll be the wet blanket. Make a list of the haves and have nots that you want in your next boat. size, trailer-ability, cabin, engine size, top speed, cruising speed, want blowers or not. Buying a boat is the easy part, figure out what you are going to spend on upkeep and fuel, insurance for going bigger, is it going to be on a lift or towed. It's winter, take your time and figure out what you want/need then approach it reasonably. many of the boats mentioned are awesome, many of them need more than just filling it with gas and going...have a plan.
