2007 MyCo trailer (great trailer) I tow between St Augustine, FL and Orange Beach, AL regularly

This year I have updated the dash to all carbon fiber, added the VV7 and the controls. The dash looks completely different. I will post pics of it this weekend as well. Since adding the 20.5P ECOs I have added roughly .2 of a mpg to the efficiency. I am now seeing 1.4 at 38-40mph cruise light. Mid range is great, but top end did suffer a little with it only reaching 57mph.

I fished the boat This past Friday Afternoon-Saturday, ran a total of 300 miles. Boat ran great, fishing not so good. The added pictures are from yesterday 7/28/19. the boat has not been professionally cleaned yest this summer. I plan to take it in for a complete detail and wax as soon as I get done fishing this year. The pictures are from cleaning up the boat from 20 hours of fishing. Let me know if you have any questions.

(From summer of 2018) I really love the boat I am only selling to move up. I am planning to stay with the Fountain and go to a 34 or 38. The boat handles the gulf chop well. I just fished the Mobile Big Game Club Limited Tournament and cruised at 40+mph total trip was 325 miles and I burned 303 gallons. Only bad thing was we went 0-2 on white marlin. Give me a call if you have any questions. I will answer them truthfully with what I know. I have had the boat for 4 seasons.
$75,000.00

I will get better pictures this weekend. I am just posting what I have easily available now.

Also I bought the boat up north the boat had the head and fresh water tank removed. I have everything for the head to be reinstalled, but never did it. I do not have the fresh water tank. The previous owner added a battery in the area where the tank used to be. It has not bothered me not having either of these. This summer the boat has spent more time on the sand bar than fishing.

Delta House 120 miles from the pass

Went to Appomattox, then back to Steps for a sword bite, to Elbow, Nipple, spur and everywhere between.

Were you at Mobile International Speedway Saturday night? That truck looks familiar!

As as far as reasonable bucket list boats go, the Fountain is on my list for the future!

Beautiful boat! Wish I could make it mine.

No wasn’t me. I put the wheels and tires on two days before that pic. I am glad I went with the 37s they fill the wheel well.
This is my second one and I have really liked them both!

How does the ride compare to the 31 Cape Horn you had? Is it very similar? I know the fountain is 2k lbs heavier than the Cape Horn. Is it wood free?

The fountain feels like a heavier boat and rides better IMO. It is also bigger than the Cape which makes it much more stable while running. This is my second Fountain and I plan to stick with them. One thing that I do miss is the 750qt single fish box that the cape had. I have not put a tuna over 100lbs in the Fountain, but I expect it to be a squeeze in the side boxes. I bought a 250qt Yeti to use as a coffin box, but it would fit a 350qt.

I pulled this off the market last year, but have decided it's time to make the move. $77,500.00 lets get this one sold.
