Default New Boat Purchase

I AM NEW TO OSO. I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT PURCHASING A BOAT A 27'-29' FORMULA OR A 27'-29' FOUNTAIN. I HAVE OWNED 2 FORMULAS AND HAVE BEEN VERY SATISFIED. I HAVE ALSO WANTED A FOUNTAIN SINCE I USE TO WATCH REGGIE RACE, I HAVE BEEN AMAZED AT THE PRODUCT THAT THEY PUT OUT. I HAVE BEEN NERVOUS ABOUT THE POTENTIAL FINANCIAL PROBLEMS THAT FAUNTAIN IS UNDER, MERCRUISER INVESTING MONEY TO BAIL THEM OUT.

They are both great boats and will run in any water.
You need to look at the pictures that I have put out there. I have had Fountains and lots of power boats and I think the Sonic &Powreplay are great .

I'm on my fourth Formula, they're great boats. Formula number 3 was a 271 that I currently have for sale. Check her out - she needs a good home. Fountains tend to be a little faster, but its hard to beat the quaility of a Formula.

Since Fountain just got that 18 million dollar loan, I wouldn't be concerned with their financial status.
