Thumbs up Chicago Boat Show

We are finishing our buildout of new facility during the month of January so we can be in before we leave for MIAMI Show and will not be attending the Chicago Show with Baja or Fountain this year.

We have one of every model Fountain & Baja in our showroom and you are more than welcome to stop by anytime and view.

that will be breaking a tradition. Baja has been at the show for decades. I am sure Grand Sport and Munson Ski will have a great offshore line up. We will be presenting in Milwaukee this year. They have a Mercury Marine and Evinrude booth on the floor plan and the show runs a little longer so you can see the Chicago Show one weekend as well as Milwaukee.

Hey Tom hows the Mitcher T paint holding up?

You would actually be supprised at the "actual" profit margin in the boating industry. It takes a lot of work to make a dollar in this biz, much more than people think..

I have been in the biz to see quite a bit for well over a decade now & rarely is anything as easy as it looks..

On a different note Congrats on your new place Scott.. It looks sharp..
