Default Donzi Is Moving To North Carolina

Some good peeps lost their jobs in Florida but it is probably a wise move to consolidate operations at the underutilized Fountain facilities.

That's an interesting move by Donzi. I wonder if Reggie is still shopping the Baja lineup?

Reggie is just an employee, he makes no decisions. They are moving Pro Line to and they ALL answer to the president of Donzi. Heard the talk at the Shootout.

They will not ever make another Baja from fountain. They are shopping the line for sure.

Not sure if it is a great move or not.......Having been a Baja designer/employee for 24 years in Ohio, the Fountain Marine Customer Service department has given out my cell phone number to the majority of calls concerning the 37 years of Baja models that ended in 08'. It will be tough for anyone to hold onto the Baja faithful, if you cannot help them with their current boat. The same could happen with the Donzi line if they cannot get some key personnel to make the move north.

IMO
