Default Profile: Fountain 47 Lightning Strikes A Major Chord

With its first new 47 Lightning sportboat in more than 10 years, Fountain Powerboats served notice that it is back in the V-bottom sportboat game in a big way, https://speedonthewater.com/new-boat...-a-major-chord.

I never got what was wrong with left hand throttles. Guess there are those that don’t have very good coordination with both hands

Always wanted to drive a Fountain to see how I would or would not like left-handed throttles. I'm ambidextrous so I think I would not have minded them at all. Still, I think it was a good call to move them to the right (maybe you can get them either way now?).

Good looking boat.

you could always order them either way. I prefer left handed after owning a fountain. Iím right handed but it feels right to drive the boat throttling left.

In the past would it have still been dash mounted if switched to the right? I assume so. Appears on this new boat it is in a more traditional position along the gunnel.

yes would have been dash mounted. Iíve had both style and thus far Iíve been most comfortable running the fountain. In a sit down app a can see more flat style working better.
