Former president has a new FountainPosted on
Fountain Powerboats and Mercury Marine recently delivered to former President George H.W. Bush his fourth Mercury-powered Fountain fishing boat, the company announced.
The Fountain 38CC, which Bush named Fidelity V, is rigged with three Mercury Verado 300-horsepower 4-stroke outboard motors that are capable of pushing the high-performance 38-foot fishing boat to 75 miles per hour.
Fountain founder and president Reggie Fountain, along with company CEO Bill Gates and Mercury Marine president Mark Schwabero, delivered the boat to Bush at his home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
“I value my time on the water in one of our nation’s great coastal fisheries, and over the years my dependable, Mercury-powered Fountain powerboats have brought my family and I countless hours of enjoyment,” Bush, 86, said in a statement. “I have learned to never doubt Reggie Fountain and his team. With each new delivery, they somehow manage to top themselves.”
Along with the keys to Fidelity V, Fountain presented Bush with a lifetime membership in the American Striper Association.
