    Anywhere from the Laguna Madre to JAX and beyond
    Finally.. with todays market place and economy there is a limited amount of room for mass produced(non-custom) entry-level boats and now the arena has been drastically narrowed.
    Now we know why they decided not to produce 29 or small beak-boats. for real

    NJ Performance Powerboat Club Press Release

    Brunswick Announces Sale of Baja Marine Assets to Fountain Powerboats

    LAKE FOREST, Ill., March 20 - /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Brunswick
    Corporation (NYSE: BC) today announced the signing of a letter of intent to sell certain assets relating to its Baja boat business to Fountain Powerboat Industries, Inc., of Washington, N.C. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, and completion of the sale is subject to certain conditions.

    In preparation for the transition, Brunswick plans to end production of Baja boats in Bucyrus, Ohio, by the end of May, consistent with the end of the 2008 model year. As a result of these actions, the company said it estimates that asset write-downs, along with severance and other costs associated with the plant closure, could total between $10 million to $15million, pre-tax.

    "This was a strategic decision to further refine our product portfolio and best focus our resources on brands and marine segments that we believe are core to our success going forward," said Brunswick Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dustan E. McCoy. "This action in no way reflects upon Baja or the abilities and performance of the Bucyrus work force. We believe, however, that Baja and its dealers will ultimately benefit from being a part of Fountain Powerboats, a company that, like Baja, is a leader in high-performance boats."

    When completed, the closing of the Baja plant will mean a loss of approximately 285 positions. Baja leadership will be working diligently to transfer as many employees as possible and practical to either Fountain or other Brunswick manufacturing facilities. For those employees who do not have the opportunity or do not wish to transfer, severance will be provided.
