    Baja / Fountain --- What's Next

    Now that Baja was bought out, what do you guys think the next move for Fountain is with this line?

    1) Is Fountain going to keep the Baja line (name) going but with only certain larger models?

    2) Or will Fountain take the Baja design's and attach their name to it with some nice tweeks?

    Tommy Jordan may be able to answer some of these questions I have.


    I had a hell of a time getting mine in this year. I had ordered mine, but then production stopped when the merge took place and I had to settle for a boat already built and on the lot of TRC Yacht Sales in Chattanooga, TN.

    So now I am stuck with a 496 Mag and not the 496 HO.

    I will be putting some pics of this boat up this weekend and asking for some advice on performance mods too. I have the Islander 242 with the 496 Mag (Bravo One). I would have loved to have the 525 SCI engine in it, but it wasn't an option from even Baja, I would have had to move up to the Islander 277 Model to get that, and that boat is uglier IMO.

    If you promise not to bring a tool box and start taking everything apart! Ha Ha. Hell, I am already looking for ways. Now I am trying to hide 5k for the SC and then come up with a reason why the boat is missing for a week or so (install).

    I think they will keep the Baja line as it's marketed at a different group of buyers. I bet you will see a stepped hull by 2010 on the Outlaw series.

    Forget the blower idea, the 496 is not a good candidate with it's cast internals. plus you'll toast your outdrive in no time. A blower add's a lot of low RPM torque and your Bravo 1 isn't up to the task.
    Go with the Raylar 525 upgrade package, turn key reliability

    Now I like that idea. With a 525, I would be set.

    Do a search over on offshoreonly.com or speedwake.com for Raylar and you'll see the real world results and dependability of that upgrade kit.
    (I post on OSO as IM4A2Z and on Speedwake as Move'n Up)
    Enjoy your new boat this summer!
