the main difference is that fountain is a production boat, nothing wrong with that, and OL is a custom boat. If you don't want something on a OL, they will take it out, if you want epoxy, they will make it epoxy, you want fiber, you get fiber, you want turbos, they will give ya turbos... fountain won't do those things for the average buyer, maybe some elite clients, but not average joe. Does fountain know how? of course they do, they just don't put that in there business model. The only thing they can be compared in is speed.... and even that is a stretch, you aren't buying the hulls they are doing this with anyway, so why does it matter? would you ride in some super light layup, no cabin, extreme power beast more than once? i wouldn't.... if mike wants to go run in RI and have somebody verify it and come to the show saying he can run 190 why does it matter? Reggie can do the same thing if he wants, i am sure they can have a boat in the water and running in the next couple of days if need be...

One of my best friends put up a deposit on a 42 OL at the 2003 Miami boat show and the next day ended up buying a new 47 fountain.
I know this may seem a stretch to some, but for the people actually writing the checks for these things it happen more often then one might think.

More power to him but I would not think of those two brand of boats in the same shopping spree at all.

I wish my budget would have me trying to make this decision. Even if it did, it sure as hell wouldn't have anything to do with which one of them holds the speed record on what day.

Let's also not forget

The OL's they run for those runs are built at the same manufacturing factory where their boats are built.

The Fountains are built at Douglas Marine (Skater) not at the Fountain Factory.

That will always score one for OL.

To Reggie...

On behalf of myself and everyone at Outerlimits, I would like to congratulate you on your new world record kilo run. I know that this significant accomplishment undoubtedly required the dedication and cooperation of the entire Fountain team. There is no doubt that this speed record will be spoken of for some time to come.

Please accept my heartiest congratulations on raising the bar by posting a new record and giving us all a mark to shoot for.

Regards,
Mike Fiore
