There were no 38 Fountains at the SCOPE Poker Run card boat in Avalon when the first 15 or so boats showed up ... there were more than a few Bravo driven Top Guns and Gladiators ... and the water wasn't rough.

Did you pass any BARS on the way - that might explain it

It's kind of like comparing a Cadillac Seville to an Escalade When it gets a little rough off the smooth road one just out performs.

For what it is worth I think my T/S TG feels very "sporty". I think it handles the rough great and yet is fun to play with. The power packages in the boats can make a difference as well. Choose the Cig with the right power for your needs and it is an awesome package. Apples to pears.

Perhaps a toupe store, or a gold/pawn shop?

Sorry, just had to!

A 38 Fountain is a great boat, if you want to say you own a 38 foot boat.
A 38 foot Cigarette is a great boat, if you want to drive a 38 foot boat!

Let's just say a Cigarette bares a number 1 on the side for a specific reason
