I can imagine having the authorities boarding that thing after I bought it and finding trace amounts of coke or weed.

I love the wire on the deck. Must of been handy for loading stuff through those beat up hatches at sea.
ill send you a project lol!

Holy crap! Someone tried to "bottom paint" a Fountain? That's damn near the whole boat! They're half sunk as it is, just anti-foul the whole damn thing!

I was expecting the transom, swim platform, and half the engine hatch to have bottom paint on a close up!!
