Default Movin On.....................

Well, the time has come for me to move on friends. As most of you know, I formed a relationship with Sundance Marine here in So. FL. nearly 1 year ago. The plan was for me to grow Fountain marketshare here (with regard to sportboats). I'll just say that it's not what I expected and we seem to have differences in what I will call "business practices". But, hey, nothing ventured - nothing gained.

On to plan B. I will be expanding one of my other companies - Bartus Marine Group, Inc. I started this company in 1999 and it has done very well since it opened. It is a full service brokerage, sales and Finance & Insurance operation. My focus will be on the Finance and warranty side of the business at this point.

I am set up with several large banks on a direct basis - which means no other "middle men" which equals great rates! . I also have access to great extended protection (warranty) programs for new and used boats.

Anyway, wish me luck and I hope I can be of assistance to all my old friends and any new members who can use my services.

Now....................what should my new screen name be?? Wish me luck!!

Good luck Bill! You'll allways be buyafountain.com in my book, even if you're in a Bayliner.

By the way, we saw you're new ride. Congradulations, hope you don't mind that I've posted the picture up here. I guess this will double as your office too?
