I remember doing several investment looks at the marine business, Fountain in particular. Even during good times, they were run like crap, financially speaking. Reggie is a dynamic force, always has been. I'm sure Liberty knows full well his character. Given the chance, I'd bet for sure that Reggie would come out with another line and screw Liberty in a heartbeat.
He founded the business, built a great brand name and network, and things were done before this boating industry depression to make it shaky. I think he's in the best position he could be in now, where he can't do as much damage as before. My guess is his own drive and ego will make him do it again. I hope not, he could do a lot of good things in the position he's in now, and maintain his legacy proudly. Time will tell.
