According to their 10Q for the 3rd quarter ending March 2002 Fountain produced 55 units compared to 72 units for the same quarter in 2001.

From their 10K they state what the capacity for productions is:


Manufacturing capacity is sufficient to accommodate approximately 30
to 40 boats in various stages of construction at any one time.
Construction of a current model boat, depending on size, takes
approximately three to five weeks. The Company, with additional personnel,
currently has the capacity to manufacture approximately 450 sport and
fishing boats, and 100 cruisers per year.

So you have to capacity to make 550 units, but you made appx 220(55 x 4 quarters)....Too much overhead, money out the window!

HOW WOULD YOU RANK IT ?? I LIKE MOST PEOPLE WOULD RANK IT IN TOTAL SALES AS THIS WOULD INDICATE MORE PEOPLE LIKED THE PRODUCT (YOU SAID NOT FOR YOU AND THATS THE POINT WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT YOU OR ME WE'RE TALKING EVERYONE ,WHEN YOU SEE THIS POINT, YOU'LL UNDERSTAND ,I DON'T CARE FOR IT EITHER BUT MOST PEOPLE DO ,ITS GOOD TO THEM WORLD WIDE !! HAVE A GOOD WEEK -END

This entire thread is hilarious to me!
I, personally do not care for the style of a Fountain. They are distinctive, however.
What I find truly fascinating is that an upper middle-aged balding man that dresses horribly and wears of all things GOLD CHAINS, can somehow convince other middle aged, mid life crisis type guys to buy his boats regardless of cost or quality!
The man is a genius when it comes to marketing.
Everyone talks about the beak and the platform. Ask yourselves why would Reggie want to make a boat appear larger than it is? Very simply put, penis envy my friends! Yep, but not really penis, but boat length envy. The guy wearing gold chains and luring young hardbodies on his boat DOES NOT want to be smaller than the next guy!
So, if he can tell the chick of the moment that his is 42 feet long when parked next to the guy with a 38 footer, he will (in his own eyes) be a hero.
Can't knock it, Reggie saw a niche and filled it!

Personally, I think he builds an OK boat, just not my cup of tea.
