Default Power Boating Landscape has changed!

The current landscape of power boating is nothing what it was 15 20 years ago. Prices have skyrocketed even for the most entry level bow rider let alone a typical 30 footer. 30k 50k for a Performance engine is just outrages! I was recently at a local boat dealer and saw an 19' bow rider with a 6 cyl Alpha One for 25K and this was for a economy boat builder!!

Almost all the known Perf Magazines are gone! Several well known builders have folded.

The days of the home equity loans (ATM Machines) are over for many home owners.

In my opinion the boating Industry has priced itself out of the business and will not come back to what it once was. The prices are just not justified but for only a few.

Glad my boat is paid for. The used market is the next boom.

I wouldn't put total blame on the industry. The price of CRUDE OIL continues to drive up the prices of resins used to build the boats...

So they basically refurbished an older Fountain CC? It looks like they did a stellar job, but I thought the idea behind RF boats was to build new ones.

The customer looks super happy. There's just a big difference between freshening up an older boat and building a fresh one.

nice to see a new start again . . .

How about some before and after shots . . . or teaser shots on future projects

Show some more action going on . . . have the owner talking, but have some movement to go with it

The video was lame. The "customers" weren't even the current owners of the boat. How could a boat only a few years old built by "fountain" the so called best boats in the world, need the bottom blue printed already? and when the bottom got blue printed why did it still have yellow water stains on it? The wrap looks like it was installed by daffy duck himself! "runs as good as new' but only 82mph in a perfect conditon 2 ft chop??? what about the 86.7???

Seriously, Reggie did great things for the industry in the past, but there is no saving the future. This video is just to satisfy Regges EGO. If RF powerboats was doing so great the 43 would be out. But it will never come out, and if it does it will never make RF powerboats any profit, just be there for Reggies EGO.

Sorry but the truth hurts.....
