speaking of bayliner...

how 'bout a pop-quiz?


which production boat manufacturer has the most bang for buck "value"
overdone, over-saturated
advertising campaign
and stays afloat (well, OK after the bail-out)
by pushing volume, volume, volume...

and has dealers dropping in and out constantly


sounds like bagliner...but it's not!

how was all that Merc $ and ownership % disguised as something prettier?

I remember all the propaganda about the reasoning and "benefits"
#1 being a huge influx of much needed CASH to pay the bills

how about the 65' debacle, racing expenditures, a couple of smaller failed projects, and a couple years of poor sales almost putting Fountain Powerboats into bankruptcy?

Merc/Brunswick just happened to want to buy into Fountain at that critical time...
what a coincidence

do I have this all wrong?

get used to it, take the ribbing in stride and with the humor intended 99% of the time.

Some of the Fountain-bashing is just plain funny.
