This so called person wanted and signed the dotted line to handle our Sunsation Products two months ago.I am a straight shooter in this buisness. I have some Italian in me, and the stories I Hear and read about Mister Harris, it starts to bring out the John Gotti in me! Not a very nice thing to do with my performance brothers.

It's a small world thanks for letting the word out.
With the numbers your talking about also no one can live on for long. Hope the noose around this guy gets tighter.

So what was Bill Harris relationship with the Fountain Dealership? I was seriously considering buying a boat from him but something told me to wait. I ended up buying a used 38 from Peir57 and they told me of some of the story on the 42. The fountain rep was also trying to get me to go thru the dealer here on a new boat instead of going to Peir57. I felt much better about dealing with Marsha and JJ at Peir57 even if it was 6 hours away. Who is the owner here and what are they doing now. I have not seen many new Fountains there in a while.

Bill and the Hustler line are gone. The man w/ Fountain part of the dealership is left with a mess. They are ordering new Fountains now. I think they left day to day ops. to Bill, and he only pushed the Hustlers.

Rbr's bad luckw ith the 42' fountain may have taken a turn for the better today. I'm sure he will chime in with the outcome.

I drove by the dealership at lunch and noticed alot of used boats out front but not a Fountain to be found. I hope the owner is able to get back on track and reclaim some of his business. I first heard of the 42 dealings back in march (I believe it was Mar) between Peir57 and Fountain of GA. I heard enough that when the 42 was offered for sale I steered clear. I hate to hear that anyone got stuck in the middle of that mess, I hope it works out.

Well no luck as of today. I could use some help in trying to check for a UCC lien against the boat if anyone could help. If this goes much further myself and maybe some of the others will be putting up a reward for the whereabouts of Bill Harris.

I also want to state that I spent this afternoon with the new owners as well as Jimmy from Fountain powerboats of Georgia and they are all straight up people who are trying to recover from the mess they have been left with up there. Stop in and give them a chance to find you what you want.
