Default foutain needs to update

In the most recent powerboat,foutain's two page add states he holds the v-bottom record at 142.969. he needs to change that add It's now 149.7,soon to be increased by outerlimits. You can't cheat in this record reggie. The record was over a month ago,ol got there add right,guess reggie doesn;t want to face the truth. Scott Applegate Jus Truckin

Wasn't the Fountain a full on race boat with a canopy and just 2 seats? The OL has a full and open cockpit.

Reggie's day is done he's been building boats for 25 years now OL for what 9. The OL is longer ( the size it says on the side) wider, taller in the cabin. the cabin doors don't break. 10-15 years ago Fountain was without a doubt one of the best if not the best out there but they havn't keep up with the rest.

Unless he is going to build a whole new boat I don't see him taking any customers from OL. I was going to buy a 32 Fever about 5 years ago but just couldn't get over the fact that you can't see the gauges well without looking around the wheel or the fact that you are jammed into the wheel because the seat is so far up. The left hand throttles I didn't like to much either.

Let's see him build boat after boat in 4 lengths and 7 styles going over 120 not 1 42 with Pier 57 on the side, so thin you could punch a hole in it go 150. And let him do it somewhere other than his Kilo runs in Washington NC.

Sorry to bash Fountain but for the last 10-12 years I have been really into boats more than before and at first they were the best and I don't even have them in the top 10 as far as the total package go's now, so yes I too think Fountain needs to update.

Scott, I'm sure Reggie is aware that the record has been broken. I'm sure the reason why it still shows the record is because I think you have to place your advertising a couple months in advance to make future issues. I could be wrong though.

I don't know what either cost new, but aren't you guys comparing apples to oranges? I thought Fountains go for penny's on the dollar compared to OL.

Although I'm no big fan of Fountains, I don't think you can doubt the competitive nature of Reggie.

You guys are taking alot away from Reggie. OL holds the record for now, but fountain held the record for like 15 yrs, and I'll bet he'll get it back, or die trying.

OL builds a gorgeous boat, probably the best on the market, but they are targeting a different market than Fountain. The average fountain costs about a 1/4 of the cheapest OL. Still a great boat though.

Besides, the boat that holds the record had like 1400's. I've never seen a Fountain with that much power, but the 42' w/ 1100 Cobras ran like 125+. With another 600HP it should be real close to OL, w/ a full cabin, Bathroom, shower, etc. and stand up bolsters.
