Where were you and what were you doing when you heard that Reggie had resigned?

Ya know, kind of ironic…….

here nor there….doesn’t matter. There’ll be some that will move on and there will be some that will stay. As long as the product remains at the level that it is at today…..there may not be a problem with those individuals. But, those of us that can’t deal with the change in the Chain of Command (COC) will move on to bigger and better things…….. Or maybe all of us Fountain followers will….

I believe that your day starts somewhat in this condition, then it appears to worsen as the day goes on. Just an observation, no offense intended. Might well be the alergy deal you spoke of.



However, you might also consider seeing a proctologist. As long as your ears are still showing he might well be able to retrieve your head. Again, just an observation.

Thank Goodness for Liberty keeping the Fountain name alive. All of these Reggie fans keep forgetting that without them there would be no brand left. Liberty probably made a deal to pay the vendors / partners and keep lot's of people employed, does that matter? I think the new Fountain presidents words were very positive about Reggie. Last but not least, didn't I read that Reggie's other son STILL works there? Anyone care about that? Maybe I am missing something.
Someone at Offshoreonly please take the BS Flag Smilie off of here before Paradis hurts himself. It's Christmas...thank god the Fountain plant is still up and running....



Close. But the borrowed was well into the millions. Wall Street crashed, economy crashed, boat biz crashed even worse ( toys suffer big when you're trying to get by ), real big opps! Unforseen, more than likely, but a real big Opps! One of those mistakes made by many at the same time. Also one of the mistakes noted in a well written article by a savy marine journalist on here. All should go to his blog and read it, he has it right on the money.

Reality is that had Liberty not been a player and stepped in, and this was not without some real serious legal wrangling on their part, with lots of help from Reggie and his lawyers, Fountain Powerboats would have likely been snatched up by the other guys and liquidated. Torn apart and sold off piece by piece. These were these two plans in front of the BK Judge, the Liberty one won out.

The plant might well be under renovation to become a home for burned out old Reggie haters like T2x.


P.S. To answer the original question, right here on OSO. Guess that's one of the reasons I feel this site is worth a couple bucks to support.

Early on Reggie was an innovator. Later on he was a cheater with an Ego larger than his gold medalion. He's run his course, and will be missed only by the mis informed.
