What was the cliffnote version of the brunswick/fountain deal???

From what i remember fountain was hurting and in big debt to Brunswick so Brunswick took over until debt was paid. Reggie was able to get outside funding and paid off brunswick. Is this about how it went down???

If so I cannot see Brunswick being the backer on this purchase for obvious reasons... All of this is just rumors as of now obviously so enjoy the speculation and popcorn!!!

Er, aren't they "technically" owned by the same company anyway - when you connect the dotted lines...?

Brunswick owns Mercury, Mercury - er, "owns" Fountain, Brunswick owns Baja... Thus Brunswick owns both? Just a consolidation in brands and manufacturing plants to cut some overhead?

Just surmising here.

For what it's worth

I heard it was Reggie and a few "investors"
....the investors have the $$$.

Brunswick doesn't want to be in the performance
boat business any more.....but, they shure like to
sell their product to it.

If this is all true, That would not be good for that town. I was there yesterday and it's a small pplace and a lot of people that would be out of work.
