Default Crashed 35 Fountain

Does anybody remember a 2007 or 2008 35 Fountain that crashed in the Pompano Beach area in about 2008? I think it hit a bridge and tore the side out of it.... I think it had Red/Yellow graphics on the side. Palm Beach Offshore Marine (Got a good story about them later) ended up with the boat last year... I was told the boat had 13 hours and 525's. It was tied up in a lawsuit or at the Insurance company until last year sometime...

Thanks in advance for all the info.... Derek

I think the boat you are asking about flipped in the open ocean......new boat, no skills, step bottom + turn = swimming!

I am 99% sure the guy that bought my trailer was the owner of that boat. He needed to get it out of a marina that was charging him to rack a wreck. The trailer was going to allow him to store it somewhere for free but that was 5 years ago when I sold it. The story was the insurance wasn't active so I believe they were trying to sue the dealership for allowing the boat to go out without insurance so they could collect from the dealer's insurance.......it seemed like a longshot case for sure.

Cashbar got the last ride on that boat if I recall correctly!

I don't think that had red/yellow? I think it was blue(ish)

And it didn't tear up the side it ripped the stern apart at the bilge bulkhead.

I just messaged LSjr for pics

"Is Cash Bar OK?"


The beak makes a great reference point to make sure you are towing a Fountain straight when upside down.
