Default Disclaimer by Reggie Fountain about Fountain Powerboats

Reggie Fountain Jr. built the largest offshore performance boat company in the world over a 30 year span from 1979 2009.

His cutting edge hull designs & superior hands-on manufacturing process resulted in the fastest, smoothest, safest & best handling V-bottom boats ever sold in the public marketplace.

SINCE NOVEMBER 2010, CEO, PRESIDENT & CHIEF ENGINEER REGGIE FOUNTAIN ALONG WITH HIS ORIGINAL TEAM OF DESIGNERS & ENGINEERS ARE NO LONGER AFFILIATED IN ANY WAY WITH FOUNTAIN POWERBOATS, THE COMPANY HE FOUNDED IN 1979.

REGGIE FOUNTAIN DOES NOT ENDORSE OR RECOMMEND ANY FOUNTAIN POWERBOATS THAT WERE MANUFACTURED AFTER HIS DEPARTURE IN 2010.

We just did this because fountain powerboats is saying that we are trying to confuse the consumer. So we want to make it perfectly clear we are not there & don't have anything to do with it.

Good disclaimer. For some reason people on this board hate a man who does nothing but love boats and fast boats at that.

From everything I've heard Mr. Fountain is a nice person who just loves boats. Never heard a bad word from anyone who has met the guy. Why the hate?

"REGGIE FOUNTAIN DOES NOT ENDORSE OR RECOMMEND ANY FOUNTAIN POWERBOATS THAT WERE MANUFACTURED AFTER HIS DEPARTURE IN 2010."

-For any good reason? If the boat is a fountain hull and well made it's still a good boat and a Fountain. I find these statements immature and petty. No matter how good you are at building boats you still have to be able to run a company. I've never heard a bad thing about Reggie as well and love Fountain boats but I'm not a fan of this post and if somehow you feel the new Fountain organization is confusing people clarify that in a more professional manner than a forum post.

I agree with Reggie. Sometimes you just need to come right out and make it known that after a certain date they were no longer affiliated.

It will help future customers make an educated decision whether to purchase something new.

The future customers will just need to educate themselves on the latest company building the boats rather than take for granted Reggies' reputation when he himself was building them.

But if Reggie has no control over the building and quality of the lay up HE SHOULD SEPARATE HIMSELF FROM THE NEW FOUNTAINS>I know people that are licensed home improvement men and I would not let them build a dog house.So I agree with MR FOUNTAIN> John SR
