The plants are in the state of Washington,and a plant in NC,has nothing to do with Fountain. Other 2 are in MN and OR.Don't you just love internet rumors?

It's hard to be positive about the economy when you hear stuff like this. The sky rocketing gas prices have not only wreaked havoc on the automotive and manufacturing sector's but also on the boating sector. The middle east is not only killing us economically they are making billions while they are doing it.

The strong will survive. I honestly think there wee too many boats being produced. There's only so much water , buyers , etc. I had a good friend that ran a successful boat dealership and they were always forced to take more inventory and they had the 2-3 year old models sitting there. It's correction time!
