summer for 130k. I looked and the best I could do was 155k with 496's and
a few options.
What are all these names your talking about Lightningg, Excectutionor, Decanntor... it makes kindergarden look like MIT. I misevaluated the obvious debt of the Fountain line they've got deeper stuff than the Red Sox bullpen.

Seems like Reggie is listening to what some people want out there. Just a poker runner!

I sure agree with that - I've actually been kinda quietly sniffin around for an older 38-42 maybe non-step, semi-PR setup ( minimal cabin, fairing, bolsters ), w/525EFI's - ( staggered ) and Konrads.

Kinda a lot to ask for - but it could be done relatively cheap, and would provide some nice fast, reliable, blue-water capability. . . . the Pacific can get kinda sh*tty sometimes.

As I said,the Ex was offered as a basic,price line boat. Everyone is
wineing about how it undermined the used market. Get over it!
The used market sucks for all boats. I think it was a good move
by Reggie. Alot of people who could never buy a new boat at 200k, plus,
have bought those Executioners. Then someday when times are better
maybe they move up into other Fountains. By the way, I dont think
it crashed the market on Other Fountains. I look in the OSO
classified all the time. I dont see anybody givin them away.
The average 4 year old 42 Lightning are all still in the 175k range.

I think the hyd steering question needs to be answered. It is my belief that the35 "X" comes with "Fountain" Hyd steering standard.
