Hey....does that thing already come with the stress cracks and the leaky fuel tank???? Is it a wet ride in a two foot chop? What is the advertised top speed....what is the actual top speed????

OK....slow down... just jerking everyones chain. I was once a proud Fountain owner....hell, I even live in Fountain Valley!!!!!!!

DMan....and the D is for I am going to get DUMPED on for being such a wise guy!!!

It was a horrible 6" chop, with the occasional boat wake. The Cig did have to withstand an attack by my American Bulldog. We didn't try the Fountain, figured that it couldn't back out fast enough. No stress cracks but the thing did fill full of water, the Cig was still dry inside. Anyone want to by a Tiger with tooth marks on the bow???
Is the D for .....the Dog bit my boat??

Went to FAO's at lunch they didn't have any. I also was looking for those Microsizers mini remote control cars and they were out of them.

Mine was from FAO in Houston. Maybe they don't carry them everywhere. Cigarette1's came from KayBee , but I've never seen them there.

Wasn't our honeymoon, that was the only room with a water view left. I have figured out a solution to the Fountain power problem though, I'm going to call Angel and see if I can get an intercooler for it
