gee will,
my boats a real 28 foot, care to race in rough water? reggie claims his boats are the best, but in reality lots of other boats can and do kick fountain ass all day long. when you claim to be the best and put down others (cigarette) of course you are going to invite critics to take a shot at you.it's reggies endless promotion that turns so many people off.

Thumbs up

Trust me the racing today is not boring . Daytona , Corpus , Savannah, Cape Cod, Key West- ROUGH ROUGH ROUGH? I race a 2002 38 Top Gun w/ 575's and it hauls the mail in any conditions. In my mind I'm running Open Class in the 70's - haha. It's all for fun and we challenge anybody to come play with us!

Does that say he purchased 200 shares? If so are you kidding me. I spent more then that in gas last weekend!!!! Looks like a feel good purchase if you ask me.

From what I can see it appears that Reggie Fountain is a marketing genius...he sells a lot of boats...the number of boats he sells more than likely correlates directly with his advertising budget...so let's not bash him for his six-plus page advertisements in Powerboat Magazine...I think you would applaud a marine manufacturer that has the ability to support the publication you all so much enjoy reading, without his advertising dollars and the that of others you wouldn't get your monthly magazine! His "endless promotion" certainly doesn't "turn off" approximately 500 boat buyers every year...



Let's stop the Fountain Bashing...they're great boats...just like a lot of others out there...

Is he running APBA again? News to me.

He must not be selling any boats cause their is no ad in Powerboat this month. Guess the interview was cheaper. Now who are buying these 500 boats a year. Are they old time gofast people or newbes that buy into all that advertiszing that they see in Powerboat. Not bashing just wondering?

RF buys stock back every other day or so...He's getting ready for when Mercury comes in for a buy of Fountain Powerboats.
I can't speak for the newer Fountains but I can for my 93 "Roughwater" 42...there ain't an Apache or Cig I can't run next to on Lake Mich.
Don't get me wrong about Apache...my next boat is leaning toward the new generation 41 by Warrior Powerboats.
