Fountain is a mass produced off the shelf boat, not a custom boat builder. They win races I'll give them that but so does Dodge and I wouldn't own one of them either. Before somebody says something about price, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
Ouch Babe. Using Scarab and Cig in the same sentence... First of all Scarab is production as you probably know... and it is out of production.

For you to compare a Nor-Tech to a V bottom is crazy. It's a completely different class. It's like comparing apples and oranges.

Nor-Tech is an Awesome boat. I'm a fan of all custom boats. If we were going Cat I would encourage a Nor-Tech

I wish I were born rich instead of so damn good looking, then I could have one of those untouchables.

Talking Re: Fountain the one others compare to

No need to worry.....

Before long, all the talk will be the comparisons between the Dragon Powerboats and the Outlerlimits...

You can't be serious. And no, not every boat has a molded swin platform. Then again, not everybody has hair plugs and wears gold chains.

Fountain has the PR game down. They make a fast boat that sets records and wins races. Why? Because that's their focus. Nothing wrong with that. If speed is your number 1 priority then I definitely think Fountain should be at the top of your shopping list. People compare other boats to Fountains wondering if they will be as fast with the same power. Chances are they won't. However, Fountain is not the gold standard to use for comparing comfort, safety, amenities, quality, ride, etc. etc. and people in the know don't use it as one.
