Things will slow but I see Cigarette pulling through the economy. On the other hand, I've heard horror stories about other brands listed on that list. Companies that have just built big new buildings or that have just recently had to take back several flooring models, I'd be worried about.

    Like I said, if everyone can just cover their over head, they'll make it through.
    When my son and i stopped the factory awhile ago, almost every Cig was going overseas. Beautiful boats they are building but i guess i'm partial. Lets hope for the best in this market.
    We're all here 'cause we're not all there.

    How in the world could someone vote for Fountain over Outerlimits? Fountain, although the future may have some bigger picture for them, is currently in Chapter 11. That, while is not out of business, is never a sign of hey things are perfect here!

    Geez you guys! LOL

    If I had to gauge off what people buy from us, it would be:
    1. OL
    2. Skater and MTI
    4. Others

    Like I said the high end market, the production guys are in for a ride.

    I just ordered a brand new "other" and it's gonna kick some serious ass. Quad 1200's. Bought it from their top sales guy, Jerry Lobo. Great guy. Gonna name it "Mold Brush." Look for it in Key West.

    That is the BEST answer.

    Is there such a thing as a strong boat company?
