Thumbs up

I hope we can all learn from this. The mfg's need to train their dealers and customers the safety aspects of boating instead of just taking people's money! BH

I just wonder is Fountain is sitting in his office... looking at the pictures of this boat.... and just waiting for that fateful knock on his door,that horrifying sound of some process server, there to hand him papers that he is being sued for making a "defective product".................

Nah I doubt it. Probally sitting around trying to buy some bigger engines so he can outrun his nearest competitor on the water. I think I'd be mandating safety lanyards and training on how to use them. IS0 9000? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm - BH

Here is another Fountian that went down at Lake Travis this past weekend. Two of the passengers were airlifted teo the hospital. The boat flipped 1.5 times before sinking. When we got there it was right side up running in circles. (NO LANYARD ) Liquid Asset and a couple others were able to get there in time to pull the people from the water.

Another sight, I hope to never have to see.

BTW everyone, the efforts of "JTB" and "Liquid Asset" in helping rescue those who were involved in the above wreck, should be commended.

You guys are heros! Having boaters like you on our waters is an asset to all of us.
