I have heard Formula is out / getting out of the go fast boats. Too expensive to update their molds / not enough demand.

I would think only the very high end custom boat manufactures will be the ones that survive in the long run. What I see is that a lot of people got into performance boating because of easy loans and cheap gas.
No more easy loans, and as soon as the economy picks back up we will see $4:00 a gallon gas again.

There might be a place for some small lake rockets but only a small percentage of people will be able to run larger offshore boats.

But then again, who knows, China and India will be moving up, maybe we can sell them boats.

BTW

Why Fountain we know they filed?
