You know it's not allowed to be both on this site!

Lol
Cig guy my man, if I ever build another cig I going to ask if they will build controls reversed, hardest thing for me to get used to was going back to the way cig does it. I like my right hand on the wheel.

Congrats to both Reggies!! You just knew this was coming!
That ain't right. Ilmor and Indmar are two separate entities.

Well we now know (thanks to Matt Trulio) that every boat is custom so the throttles can be wherever you want them and you will pick the power.

I can see the 'old' line going away. Who would buy one? Unless they stay more production orientated, thus more affordable for the person still wanting a 'Fountain'? Still think it will fade away though.
Wonder how the guys feel that have recently ordered a new Fountain, now knowing this news?

Good Luck to RF Powerboats!
