what he says is that there are too many people in the business. and that ,too many people trying to fight for a small space,too many people willing to charge less than real value, and alot of competition in this industry that is somewhere between silly and foolish. PB: DO YOU SEE OVERCAPACITY CHANGING ANY TIME SOON? LK: NO UNFORTUNATELY, I GUESS I DON'T. I'D LIKE TO BELIEVE IT IS ,BUT NO , I DON'T SEE IT .

Thanks. I can hardly believe it was that long ago.

I guess my take on this is that competition usually (not always) brings a better product to the customer. Like I said earlier, my two small manufacturer boats kick the living crap out of the production boat in the quality department.
