True, but could you imagine the sales increase after press coverage of that event got around the world?

Wishing O.L the best on this !
May is right around the corner and they sure must be busy at the shop. Always look forward to see the testing out on the local Bay.
Quite a haul to the fastest water on Earth, Bristol to the Salton Sea.

Matt, I owned a 1990 25 foot Checkmate and went to the factory to look at a 27 Fountain. I ran the boat with Jeff Harris around 1993 and it would not run with the Checkmate. Later after Fountain had boats that were running faster speeds I bought my first one. I bought it because of the SPEED and the WINNING of championships. So now you have two who bought on Monday what was winning on Sunday. Have now owned 8 Fountains overall. Roger A.

This guy lives for Reggie Fountain.
Probably has gold chains and a similar haircut!

Dude, you are the most opinionated poster on OSO when it comes to Fountain...

Then you mock anyone that goes against Fountain or you.

Isn't it pretty cool that OL or anyone has something good going on in a bad economy and we have something else to talk about besides doom and gloom?

Price Price Price...i've got a hand full of friends that bought Fountains simply based on bang for the buck. Sure they would have loved a Cig T/G or an OL but was a little out of reach. 1 specifically purchased an 05 (i think) 35 Fountain w 496 that ran 82 on the limiters. nd he was the first to admit that it was built or rigged nearly as nice as the other 2 mentioned BUT the boat show special was $159,000. I would hope that nobody truely believes that the boat that won on Sunday can be bought on Monday because it cant. That boat that won on sunday has more R&D hours in it then all the other boats on the show room floor combined. I've been involved with retail and motorsports for over 20 years...and NEVER once did i have a client come in on Monday to by a Corvette or a Saleen because it won Lemans ...lmfaoooooooooooooooo

back to the subject...alls it is, is a rich mans bigger D**K contest and honestly i couldnt care who's is bigger. If i were in a financial position to buy a new 38-42 ft boat it wouldnt be either of the above...i will take a 39 T/G w 850's n 6's that runs an everyday solid 110 and rides much nicer then either of the other 2 mentioned at the same length. I've been in all 3 so yes i am speaking from experience.
