kk, good to hear! I get sick of the Fountain bashing even though I'm a Donzi guy.

have a question regarding the manfg'rs identification code on the HIN numbers on any of the new boats that will be produced in NC. The MIC code identifies the factory where the boat was made not really the company as the donzi made in the OMC era in goshen IN. had chris craft MIC's so will a baja or pro line or donzi or fountain have to change their code for this new operation. for recall purposes they need to know where the boat was made so the HIN have to reflect that don't they??? so they need to know a fla donzi from a nc donzi

sorry for the side track

Very interested to see what the future will bring

again good luck to the Fountain family

Right.
Skater, MTI, Cigarette, & quite a few other performance boat companies, have factories that aren't on the water. Skater being in Michigan, gets a few FEET of snow every year outside of their factory.

Not being on the water & having Winter conditions hasn't slowed any of them down!

Back in the day, I was scrambling to get my race boat running, Reggie came over to me, (no I was not racing a fountain, but in the previous race, I had won, against one of the big name fountains), he offered his parts trailer, and assistance, for what ever I needed.

I never owned a Fountain, I have been in several. Reggie and company have built the V-bottoms, in the world, for many, many years. Just look at the race records.

Best wishes to Reggie and the entire Fountain family!

Didn't a guy named Don Aronow start and sell several boat companies? Did he get criticized?

Good luck Reggie.... I look forward to your next winning entry!
