Strange times we live in when interesting, informative reporting gets in the way of profit. I've always believed good reporting would help drive profits. Apparently, I am wrong.

They were all built by Riviera in Australia. I've spent quite a lot of time on the Aussie version (called a Riviera) and they're great boats. By OSO standards, they aren't fast. The one I used to go...

If you want a Fountain, there's plenty around with twins, keep looking. Triples are ok but yes, a bit more maintenance. Fuel useage is only slightly more. Fountain Vs Cigarette is a never ending...

Stupid question maybe, it's not antifouled and dirty is it?

I've read comparisons to Yamaha and the Yamahas sound pretty indestructible. Very strong hard working engines. Simple comparison, Merc faster but Yamaha more reliable.
