Just like many other high profile boat companies, the owner pissed away the shareholders money. Yes Reggie was/is a successful builder, but at whose expense?-the shareholders. The sad part is that when Reggie starts a new company, there will be many who will purchase stock ignoring his business history.
Good point. Forgot to add the "investors" to my #64 post. Here is my contribution to the "quote of the year".

Agreed. His f*cking family is here. How about showing a little respect or at least expressing your opinion in a civilized manner. While Fountain Powerboats lost a lot of their mystique no one can deny that back in the early days they were THE boat to have. Maybe Reggie stuck it out too long when he should have pulled a Don Aronow sooner but I still respect Mr. Fountain. And I will never forget my first ride in an off-shore boat which was in the early 80s (I think) in an original Fountain Executioner.

He is either 69 or 70, not 72.....and swallowing his pride isn't what the guy is/was about and that is the drive that built Fountain Powerboats to what it was. He probably looks at the 20K a month as an "allowance" and would rather not take it just to prove his critics (guys like Hacker) wrong again!

Go Reggie, stick to your guns and get back on top!

Wow...the guy didn't die! He is moving on. I am all about seeing new products. He does have an ego..."If I build boats again comparing my new boats to my old boats will be like comparing bi-plane to a jet fighter". He must be going to build cats...

Rider, my post was in response to the one by "Hacker". Reggie rubs some folks the wrong way but that post is disrespectful, plain & simple, especially since Reggie's son is posting on this thread. Yes, he has an ego, he apparently uses spray on hair and colors it black and he likes gold chains. At the rate I'm going I might look into some of that hair stuff before long! Good luck Reggie Fountain & sons. Looking forward to seeing what happens.
