I run a marine lift and the center of gravity on most of these boats is towards the rear with the engines and fuel tanks and the fact that there is nothing in the bow, they are stable, especially with steps, the boats sit down stern first on the forks and are very stable.

Here are some more pictures of the boat in the rigging process. The 2 livewells are 55 gal and the transom is such that the water will run off the transom because the lip has been leveled, also note the new stainless steel transom bracket and pull out ladder.
The dash has been totally redone and more to come.

One thing about Fountain is they are so vertically integrated they can make things happen quick. A lot happens in house. Looks good. I think they can make it to the show. They slid in at the last minute when they introduced the open bow 38 also. Looks nice. Cant wait to see how the no-wood hull changed the ride and performance.

Greg Bent and I will also be at the show representing Bent Marine at the Fountain booth. Please stop by and say hello, we will be happy to show you the new 38. I don't want to give away too much but the pricing is going to be attractive. That said I have a couple brand new 09's I will make someone a smokin deal on. Can't wait to meet everyone at the show, we had a great Ft Lauderdale show and we are very excited about Miami.

homesite, did you notice the 6 bolt pattern? 1 up and 2 down each side , instead of 2 up and 1 down? Just a different way to do it.

Fountain changes the design and you're stuck with not one but two brand new 38s that are now outdated.

The hull is the same. That is whats important. I own an "outdated" model and it is a heck of a fishing machine. I am glad to see the new improvements to the deck and console.

I also imagine Bent Marine will sell more 38's in the future b/c of the changes. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if Bent Marine requested some of the changes.

This sounds interesting, Any idea of what the smaller lenght will be?


BTW The new 38 looks great

Not trying to derail the thread, but I did a search of the 38 pilothouse, boy that sure would be a cool boat up here in the PNW

I've always thought that would make a great West coast boat.
