Look at the 3rd drive. It has no lower skeg. That has to be the worst use of the English language I've seen.

Why would Fred want a 42' Fountain? He's already got a 39' boat!

(that ought to get those beak-niks up in arms!)

I think it's a bit pricey for the condition not having power or drives. Maybe if it were a Cig....

Mrs. dockrocker has determined that the only project in our immediate future will have 4 bedrooms, a kitchen with an island, and be in a good school district. And I have to say I agree with her... besides, Fred's working on my next boat right now!

Thats a rare 42 Fountain...It has the heavy constucted conventional V bottom...9700lbs, They don't make them like that anymore.
Great roughwater project boat.
Remember when Reggie raced his 42 and 47, he spanked all those Cig's and Apache's...Thats the same bottom...no steps and built like a tank.
$32,000 ain't bad for the quality of hull your gettin...just needs some work and you'll have an Offshore Monster.
3 talldeck blower motors and some Bmax drives= 110mph, I'm droolin over this uncut gem.
