Maby because my 12 yr Fountain has no
swim platform is the reason it runs 120.

Saber28 - sorry about your small boat - pull up beside my 38 sometime - with the same power in your 28, a 38 (especially a staggered) will wipe your A#$ - in any water. Been there done that.

First when you pay to store or dry stack a boat they count, and you pay for the swim platform, and all they way to the tip of the bow. So If they call it a 38' that's what it is. No one is *****ing about Comparing a Founatin, or Cigarette, or anything else to say a magnum that's 4' or 5' wider !!!

So when I bolt on the swim Plateform I have sitting in my garage to my Top Gun will I have a 41'?

why are you bashing me? I HAVE NEVER SAID ANYTHING BAD ABOUT FOUNTAINS! read this several times if you have to.my point is about reggie's bash of cig. and formula, this guy has an ego that probably will be the death of his company and certainly is causing damage to the APBA. you can argue who is the biggest/baddest til you are blue in the face, do you really think a 38 foot(35 ) is going to outrun a 28 with the same power in the smooth water? all logic and physics goes against that theory, i would have to see it to believe it, sorry.

I don't think anybody is saying that Reggie builds a bad boat !! He builds, a great boat, and works very hard to promote his company, but in my opinion he slams anybody that says anything other than Fountains are the greatest things since sliced bread and air conditioning.

His hatride for Mike A., and APBA is only showing what type of person he is. His on son won APBA Super Vee last year, other than a sign in the Fountain booth at the Miami boat show, and 1 or 2 ads (that I saw) he has done nothing to promote that, but still runs adds about records that have since been retired (due to rules changes)

I could be wrong, but with all the APBA records and championships that Fountains have won over the years, wouldn't it make sense to promote that, and come over and show what your product can do ?

is this boat a specially prepared light lay up boat or a boat that i could go buy down at my marina. you are not comparing apples to apples.if it makes you fountain guys feel better: SABER28 says fountains are superior boats that will outrun all other boats in smooth water or rough water. if fact they are so much better than everybody else's boat i'm going out right now to sink or burn my boat. i encourage all cig. and formula owners to do the same.
