Since they were both the same size I would have kept the Baja and made the women happy

I don't think so.
Because Reggie is going to hire BigChubby to haul them all to N.C.

That would suck for the employees
It's been there for quite a while (I know for a fact over 5 years). I know it's going to hurt the town and the industry around Baja (marine repair shops specializing in Baja, etc)

I think, RG correct me if I'm wrong, the only other big employer there is a rubber hosing factory.

RG can give more details than I can. TeamBaja is the Baja endurance tester and his brother helps design the boats.

Does "Air Time" get a free knee from Reggie so there's no hard feelings?

Probably better than if this deal had not been put together!

PS: Ditto for a new Fountain ...

Baja has been In Bucyrus for at least 30 years,maybe longer. I was a Baja dealer I think in 1974-1976.Tough for the employees and the town.

Severance can be 1 yrs salary and bonus or it could be two weeks and kizz my azz...... Severance need's to be quantified in this case...
