Post your personal financial statement here, then when you throw stones, maybe you would have a tiny bit of credibility.
I am beyond sick you you spewing the obvious in your always negative, always self absorbed posts as if you somehow are going to educate all of the visitors with such profound statements like:
"This is about business. Either you make money for investors, or you don't, and your stock price reflects the faith that the financial community puts in you as a businessman, not as an "icon". Currently the trend is gloomy"
Everyone knows that - Shoegren knows it, I know it, all of my friends who are on here daily know it and probably the majority of the people here know it.
Let us all become aware of the entire littany of grand accomplishments of your Business career (looks like you are a "Vice Predisent" of something from what Google has to say) and then we can all judge your prospective and opinion for the value that it may have, or may not.
Enough is enough - you spend so much time shouting about loving the sport but you are one of the most destructive Guys that contributes in the forum.
Reggie - he races on Stockholder Money - not a ba GIG for someone who eats it, sleeps it, and breathes it. The Guy is possesed with it - more than anyone I have ever met - and I am NOT a Fountain Fan and probably will never Buy one, but you have absolutely got to give this Guy Credit - he makes a V Bottom go 171MPH - pretty impressive no matter what the stock price does.
THIS ONE TIME...IN BAND CAMP...................
Funny that Mercury, sorry, Brunswick owns four of those companies you have listed. In addition to having a debt equity stake in Fountain.
Sonic had to be bought out out survive.
Superboat and Phantom don't make as many boats per year as there are months in it I believe.
Bertram only survives b/c they were bought out by the Ferretti group.
So that leaves what, 2 of the companies you listed as really strong enough to stand on their own feet. Allison and Skater.
Excuse my ignorance, but I did not know that Checkmate was still in business, they should alert the press. Spectre had to totally divest themselves of their core boats due to insurance companies refusal to write policies for customers.
It's a very rough business and let us not forget the boat company that T2X was a sales manager for.
it says Shogren on the side.
it says Rio Roses on the side.
it says "15" with the Eagle and Flag on the beak.
its running BIG Sterlings w/ PSIs
David Knight and Tim Seebold are throttling/driving.
same for me as what Cuda said. Not really a fan, but you gotta respect him for what he does.
I saw Rio on the Pamlico last year. If that isnt hauling a$$ in a Vee, i dont know what is.
