not my first,,, or even 3rd color choice, and I don't know why... but the color is growing on me. haha!

Some of my first big off-shore fishing experiences were on my cousin's 35' Fountain out of Topsail, NC. Big water and 3 screaming Mercs on our way out to search for Mahi and Tuna. Loved that boat. Glad to see you were able to get her running and back on the water with what seemed like minimal/basic efforts and expenses. Keep enjoying it!

working on getting the boat dialed in, changed the spark plugs and tried a different set of props. boat came with a set of 25p Mirage's, which originally gave me a top speed of 64 mph turning 5250 rpm. tried a set of 23p Bravo One's after changing the plugs, 61 mph turning over 5900 and hitting the rev limiter when trimmed out with half fuel and full livewell on board. gonna put the 25's back on and see what i get with the new plugs.

well 2 weeks ago i started removing the stripes, sanded off pretty easily with 320 on a sander, followed by 600 on a sander, then a pretty abrasive compound on a high speed buffer.

next will be pulling the bolster seat and installing this birdsall leaning post tackle center that came out of the contender as im installing a new leaningpost/tackle center/cooler in it

looks good Aaron. have you named the boat yet?
your Aquasport is going to be Jealosea if you keep messing with the Fountain. (see what I did there?)

Took the bolsters off- keeping them off or going back with something else? Boat looks great without the Miami Vice stripes, what is the plan for the new bootstrip and colors?

i plan on having the bolsters re wrapped solid white. i have a few cans of white vinyl dye that im gonna try first, the vinyl is in great condition, jut some hideous colors.
the name is gonna stay the same, "Gotta Go" gonna have it redone probably blue and red, same with the FL numbers.
