Yeah, sometimes people's opinions are bold.

My opinion is that I will see the end of the industry in my lifetime. Seemed like the right thread for it.

If that makes you feel bad, I'm sorry.

My intention was not to make you feel bad, it was to have an intelligent conversation about "why the powerboat industry is sinking." I'll admit that it has been a challenge.

If you are suggesting that my opinion is not valid because I no longer have a boat, that's fine.
A guy with a perf boat is probably better than me anyway.
That tends to be the prevailing attitude.
Whatever. That's the kind of PR that will help bring speed limits to lake winni, manatee protection to no wake zones, noise laws everywhere else.

oh look.... boattrader is up to over 118,000 boats.

This incesant complaining about gas prices and the economy is beginning to sound like a press release from the DNC.
There is simply no reason for this "ragging" about people who have created a lifestyle which they enjoy very much ..... and can still afford!
