Personally, I don't think the reason for boat companies problems are specifically management.......let's face it--a boat is NOT a necessity, it IS a creature comfort. Nobody needs a boat, so sales will naturally decline when times are tough.

How so ? Supply and demand is how it works.. More materials will be sitting on shelves if they fail and prices will drop .. Bad if youyr a stockholder..great if your an end user

I am a replubican, and not a fan of Kerry, but it would be very hard to imagine any administration doing as much damage as the current one.
