Default From a Legacy perspective. . .

Warpaint has it EXACTLY < see post above > possibly swapping Cig for Apache in the 1-2 spots.

I found the almost unanimous exclusion of Magnum somewhat disturbing.

Honorable mention - Moppie

Sincerely,
a Fountain owner

This is not about Legacy or looks or anything like that. It is about John Q Public and I am willing to bet that if you go around you will not find ANY people that are not heavily into performace boats that will know what Apache or a Sutphen are. Am I nuts hear?

Very interesting thread. It looks like if the choice was expanded to 6 or 7, it would almost be unanimous.

As far a some names being listed, it's not about the best boats, or what your boat is from what I gather.

For instance, I've been around boats all my life, mostly fishing boats. Two years ago if you asked me what an Apache was, I would have certainly replied "a Native American". And at that point, I was surely more knowledgable about boats than John Q.

The five I listed were the one's that I had heard about and knew they were performance boats before I got into them.

In other words, my view when I was John Q.
