Matty, Donzi is kind of named after Don Aronow.

Anyway i hope Fountain stays in business producing production boats and Donzi pulls through and Baja keeps building entry level boats. Now, what does Reggie have up his sleeve? Something to compete with the likes of Skater or MTI???

That's great to hear I think. I was only imagining how cool it would be if he could somehow shrink Fountain down, or start something new, where he could produce a LOT less boats & be able to really build some badass custom stuff. It looks like that's exactly what he's planning.

If he can produce more fast hull designs, he could really come out with something that would blow Fountain away.

I said the same thing here not long ago that he needed to scale back the amount and get them up to the level of Nortech and Outerlimits and got blasted that they were allready as good or better...... Well NT and OL have had and still have a waiting list for boats so they and I must be right on what the people that still have money want. Reggie needs to get back into boat building because right now he's just this guy. He does still have his appartment building right?

kind of is not his name, the main thing different here. Don moved rapidily from company to company Reggie has always been with fountain boats. In my eyes is all it will take is for Reggie to show up at a race somewhere with a new RF boat and kick azz on the OL and the old fountain race boats on the circuit.then what we know as fountain is in trouble. I think you stay with what ya know and reggie knows how to make fast V hulls.
