Re: 35' Fountain Buyers Beware!

What a BS post. I'm not a Fountain guy by any means, but this is a fraudulant seller issue and the manufacturer of the boat is not even relevant!

Re: Bravo & TRS

Re: Pros And Cons On Trs Drives

I've got TRS on my Cig 28SS and I have no intention of replacing them, and with normal maintenance I don't expect any failures. The guys that slam them are either doing something with them beyond...

Re: Where to get Whipple's Rebuilt?

Apparently after a while the seals wear out and oil leaks, both externally and internally. I was having to add oil to mine every few hours. It was weaping a bit on the outside behind the pully and...

Re: Whos going to the OSS in Corpus?

I went to the CC races years ago when OSO was in it's infancy. Had a great time, met some OSO'ers, and made some great friends. Too short of notice to make it down this year though.
