If it's official you'd think they'd blow it out w/ a press release. I heard it was in the works but didn't know the details. Hearing Reggie has already set V-hull speed records & that he plans to go after a cat speed record building his own line.

I see Matt Trulio posted a story on Shogren dropping the Fountain line. Shogren has been #1 in US sales for several years 2nd only to the dealer that has Fountain Worldwide sales.

Very cool! May have to just get one of those.

I can't help but to think that he just gave all the people that invested in his company the big middle fingure. Thanks for beleiving in me, investing in my company, sorry I ran it into the ground, bailed on that company and started another.....

I know it is business and I know it happens but still.

Highly doubt that was his thinking/planning, just the way some see it though.


Maybe Shogren will have a new line soon?

Ok while the end result may be so you make it sound as if it was premeditated from the time he launched Fountain. Love em or hate don't forget the man & his boat line has made many contributions to the pleasure, performance & racing boat world. There's a big difference between ENRON, Bernie Madoff & Reggie Fountain, your statement implies there's no difference.

" Fountain" as in RF, or as in FPB? Big difference, and have yet to hear it from those involved. The article could be taken either way. I haven't the slightest idea.
