Key West's race #1 in SuperVEE isn't going to help either.

Good, raise the prices on new boats

I was wondering when they will have to do this. Don't be so nice to the boating public Reggie.....learn from the comp and hit 'em hard at the dealer.

Look before you leap Sean. Reading the reasoning for the poor perf I would question why implementing Lean Mfg. would be a mentionable drain. If implemented well there is no loss in producitivty. No mention of commodity pressures at all which must be a large negative driver of editda. It has been for most other domestic manufacturers. And ending expenses related to racing cannot be a good move. They need to advertise more, not less.

Reggie ought to put me in there, I'd get that ship righted

wicked financing deals are the first sign of a problem....

I'm sure the cost of FRP went up with the oil prices and this summer.

this time of year is the usual low for their stock which picks up steam usually during boat show season and slowly falls back as the season wears on..all the positive press from big order numbers during late winter and early spring usually helps things, then people come back to reality
