Fountain Powerboats & Shogren are parting ways, not Reggie & Scott!

Glad to see this made public. I knew it's be only a matter of time before there was some great news.

Congrats to Mr. Fountain, I knew he would'nt go out laying on his back. LMAO

I know it is business and I know it happens but still.
Ever hear of a guy named Don Aronow? He made a hobby out of bending buyers over.

looking foward to seeing the new RF logo!

my guess is that it will be more of a build to order concept with unique customer (aka $$) options like Nortech, MTI , Skater and others out there. Look for Shogren to pick them up as a dealer.

there seems to have been a couple personel "defections " from other companies as well recently perhaps to help out in this new venture?

either way wish the family well and looking forward to see their product line!

I got a sneaking feeling that Mr Fountain's gonna be splashing a V bottom, maybe somewhere in the "43" ft area, and maybe a center console with outboards to get his feet wet. LOL

RF powerboats, as is Reggie Fountain ??? or, "Real Fast" powerboat BY Reggie Fountain. Sounds kinda catchy don't it ?? Looks like if you're gonna want your boat to run like a real Fountain, then he'll be able to "get er done" for ya.

Anyway, did a lil research on Liberty. How can a company such as Liberty, sell any boats, when Fountain's still bankrupt??? Seems that they never paid the commission to the broker for the sale, for lack of funds ??? Sounds like many of the premier employee's at Fountain walked off the job this week. Do they see something that we don't ???
Seems like Liberty told Reggie what he wanted to hear, then they gave him the shaft. Looks like the shaft is being turned around now, and stuck right up their azz. LMAO

Anyway, looking forward to seeing this (and way much more) gone public in the near future.
