I don't know if it's just me or what,,,,,,,, but almost every violent boat crash lately has involved a Fountain. I mean really, you guys have to agree, Fountains are crashing left and right. Whats up with that?!?!

there are a lot of fountains out there and nobody can dispute the fact they are fast... Anybody with good credit can buy one.. just a thought.

I do agree. And not happy about it either.
One guy here in WI with 42' did the same thing, launched 4 people in the water and went round and round for 15 min before it crashed into some guys dock.

Yeah, it's kinda strange. I'm certainly not bashing Fountain or any of our Fountain owners here on the Board, I like Fountains. But, I just gotta wonder what the deal is here. They are fast, maybe the fastest for the money. I believe that has something to do with it.

It's pretty sad to see all these nice Fountains impaled on all manor of trees, bridges, bouys, etc.

Gotta be either lack of experience or too many cocktails.
