Lightning Bay is no longer in business, closed due to economic conditions.

As the past owner, Michael Flanigan, I have taken the positions of VP of Sales for Spectre Powerboats and now also Sonic Powerboats.

Sorry to hear that, Mike. Good luck with your new position.

Thanks Xconn - No that jerk off never did pay, my attorney is still pursuing some things. Collection department has it now too. It will affect him someday, one way or another.

Mike,

Sorry to hear it man. I remember the first boat we bought from you, a 41' Velocity. A top notch deal. After that we traded parts back and forth. You were always fair and honest. When we did the insurance logistics for Progressive, again, you were as dependable as they come. I hope better times come your way my friend. You deserve it.

Todd

Hey Todd - thanks for the kinds words. We did our best to be professional wiht everyone. I remember that 41 Velocity!!! I repo'd that for a local bank out from behind a guy's house. That was a cool boat.

Tough economic times just finally took its toll on the buisness.

Thanks to everyone who had supported us over the years!
