Can't see the pic 'cuz I'm cheap, but it sounds like a great boat. Congratulations! I have several friends with 35 Fountains and they love theirs, so I'm sure you will too.

What is the difference between a 35 Lightning and a 35 Executioner?

I have always wondered and thought I might interject here...

Anyone?

the lightning is a twin step hull while the executioner is based on the older single step hull. My brother in law just bought a new executioner and it is a lot of bang for the buck for a fountain. the lightnings are typically faster boats but the executioner is still a very solid performer.

Also, the Lightning has the rounded glass windshield and molded vents, while the Executioner has the angled windscreen and vents. Lightning has more freeboard too.
