Default Pics of old Fountian US Customs Boats

I thought some might find these pics interesting. We were running up I-77 in West Virginia and spotted the boats just off the highway, at a salvage yard. I guess the salvage yard owner must have bought the boats at a sealed bid, government auction and stripped them for parts because the hulls were no count. These puppies were rigged, rigged, rigged and rerigged, if you know what i mean. They would make great yard ornaments, you could bury the hull in the ground and use as Koi pond or kiddie pool. Some of the Fountians were (pre Beak) boats but deffinitely Fountians. Correct me if I am wrong but I think Fountian was splashed from the old Excalibur hull and then beaked out in the early 80's. The last boat pics looks as if it might have seen a little action from the druglords with all the bullet holes in it.
