Default Fountain the one others compare to

Why is it that every time you turn around everybody is comparing Fountain boats to other boats, you never see someone comparing a Cigarette to a Outerlimit or Nor Tech I quess Fountain is doing something right. just about ever boat out today has a molded swim platform as for as the nose its a styling issue get over it. You either like it are you dont.

cig, OL and baja don't have molded in platforms in their hp versions.... and i think most people are comparing their fountain to those boats, not the other way around.

I guess it's easier to compare to Fountain than it is a Formula

Most compare Cigs to other boats. It's just the last couple weeks people have been talking about Funny Beaks.

Cigs and OL are what I like to think of as Untouchables.... They have a standard that know one else can touch.

??? it's always Cigarette or Scarab people that don't know what they are talking about say. But except for top speed and it ain't much more for size and #'s there is NOTHING on a Fountain that compare's to my Nortech, and only Cig and OL come close or better. 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.
