my favorite ads are the ones where Fountain is in 1 place and proud of it

either because it's the only boat running class or the only one making the rules.















now don't get all pissy, just killin' some time and looking to break 3000 posts.

Look how far those tabs are from the water. The swell it's landing from must be out of the frame.

Excellent photography though I must say...

We all have to do things for our work that cut into our personal lives - but that doesn't "explain" (excuse) doing a sub-par job.

This is about being a Professional in your chosen career.
As opposed to simply having a job.
I also am a Firefighter! (A little different than a dirty boat!!!!! ) Working on a holiday to save a life or property is a little different.as would be the same for our men and women protecting our country! and Cities and towns the above are not jobs they are ways of life and Those of us doing it love it! Not even close to on topic. people are not Boats!

Quite possible that you do. Checked out Yahoo financal site, Merc / Brunswick Corp. shows no ownership position in any data on the Yahoo site. They do list major insider owners as well as major financial instutions owning major blocks of stock, no mention of Brunswick.

Rumor had it several years back that FPB was into Brunswick pretty deep and some arangement was worked out in terms of debt vs ownership/control, but nothing on the Yahoo site, that I can find, backs that up. Possibly converted to some form of investment loan, not sure. Maybe our buddy axapowell, financier extroardinare, can find more thru his sources. Rumor also had it that Brunswick was interested in adding FPB to its "family" of boat companys.

FYI curently trading @ $4.35, projected to go to $5.00, and ranked as a "buy". The listing symbol is "FPB".

Maybe if someone cleaned up the show boats the ranking could be changed to a "strong buy".

Should we be lead to believe that you have re-ranked the old Imager/353 Formula from a "strong sell" to a "hold" ?
