That's for sure. He does keep the sport in the spotlight more than most, (and makes for good discussion).

I still say you should buy him out. It would be good reason to move to S. Fla full time.

I agree! If you give me a position of authority, do I have to wear goofey looking shorts? I can handle south FLA.

HELL, no.....

For my taste, buying a small, struggling, private performance boat company and fixing the leaks would be much more fun and less stressfull. Having to have an entire film editing crew, and a company ran race organization designed to "create" hype every other week for investors, magazine readers, and of course, the net surfers is not something many would be interested in having to deal with.

Contrary to popular OSO beliefs, just because people are "talking", doesn't necessarily mean they're buying.

I'm sure they'll be fine. If it goes lower Brunswick probably will execise their option to buy out Mr. Fountain and continue on their merry way....whatever way that is.

Obviously you haven't checked Brunswick's stock lately.
