Central Marine 58 Fountain

Sometimes you gotta build in the Kitchen.

The 58 Fountain by CRC.  Another fantastic boat.  However, this particular boat and I have a love hate relationship....

Why is it a love hate???

I equipped her with a Werner steerable drive system.  Werner custom built this particular drive housing to fit the back of the Fountain.  Getting things connected were not fun as it seems I managed to install it (steering linkage) the most difficult way possible.  However Im close to having all of the gremlins out of it and look forward to many years of enjoyment with another fantastic CRC hull.

A little has changed in the last couple months with this boat...

I felt COG was a bit too far forward and would  sometimes get "bow steer".  So out came the stock Zenoah 30 w/ Bonzi clutch and in went the Gizmo full mod 30 with no clutch.  As seen to the left, it also carries a Werner fuel cell and MHZ radio box.  Still a lot of testing and tuning on this one as its only been in the water about 4 times.  Videos coming soon!


Update 2/24/18

This boat is now stripped apart, the hull has been blue printed, seems filled and painted with a base/ clear.  A few more things to do to it, a few changes being made and it will be back together and better then ever.  Keep an eye out for this one!
