    Based on the major vendors I deal with, sales are off 50-60% across the board on new boats.

    If they are selling that much less than it equates to the new boat sales loss as well.

    The single biggest obstacle is getting financling which has killed sales. Anyone that says different is a salesman......

    I truly wish it was different but in reality it is factual.
    Never compromise your passion.

    on a lake......................

    I love Fountains. I was a dealer and have had 4. My 42 would run hard but a 38 TG would outrun it in big water.

    Either you 1) have only had a Fountain 2) are employed by them or 3) just joined OSO this year.........
