I am with Race Girl - Best of Luck to them all!

Fountain may do better than Baja if the stated 85 employees remain on the payroll. The Baja brand has a #1 salesperson in place that knows Baja DNA, but he can't do it all! Hard to start with brand passion right out of the gate! I wish anyone in the boat business well.

Any more mergers and we will be buying boats from "ProInSonFounDonSpecBa"

Possibly Powerplay by Steve1? PPS1?

No beak, all business
