    In this climate MFG's and dealers only spend on shows that have potential to produce sales (KEEP IN MIND SHOWS ARE VERY COSTLY TO DO) ...... if there is no performance market buyers attending (which we look at past notes...IE ...... most show goers walking past a 100+ MPH cat say ..... hey buddy .....where are the rod holders and laugh then burp up a beer generated belch ....... why go and spend big dollars for nothing...thats why certain show have zero performance boats and boat show in general....especially the smaller local ones are family oriented and "THE WIFE" does not want a go fast boat...PONTOONS are affordable and are the MINI VANS of the industry.

    Ya it would have been nice. Syr die'd along time ago,I brought Nordic there in 2000 and got no interest at all. We had A.T. back in about 95/96 and there were about 5 or 6 sold. And being an A.T. cult member I can tell ya that they wouldn't do well here now having tried 2 yrs ago. I hope to meet you at the poker run this year and hope you do well with Pat and crew. What ever happened to Lonnie where did he end up?
