Hey, all I wanted to do is post so that I can get notified when there's a new post.

And apache guys are NOT hostile. It's something else all together, but I'm not sure what.

But for everyone's sake, let's not turn this into another Apache rant!!!!!!!!

Go price a 42 OL then a 42 Fountain with same power.... then decide what to buy. Most cant buy an OL and most can buy the Fountain.

Both BADASS boats.... one twice as expensive

What better R&D venue is there than an offshore race course ??

It is the same as Lambos and Ferraris.... both expensive as chit and only the pony races....

No , the public wants a great looking, fast, quality somewhat affordable boat.... hence the popularity of the Fountains. I have a 29. I looked at every boat in that class out there and I was able to get a single engine, 80mph, very quality boat for well under 100K. I am lakes mostly and will get into something bigger in the 35 to 38 range soon. It boils down to bang for your buck in my book.
I am looking at OL, Cigs and Fountains for my next boat. All great!

You guys really need to "pack in" the V-Hull Technology and experience a Skater. Dollar for Dollar they are equal to or cheaper then Fountain or OL and they way out perform both. They are also race proven in speed and safety.

It is not out of the realm of possibility.... I just have limited exposure to one. Send yours to TX and I will try it out for the summer.

Is there even anyone out there who is currently trying to decide between an OL or a Fountain? I doubt it.
