Maybe they can play it like Coca Cola Classic did. The sales might be so bad that he'll go back, then sales will be better than ever!

I can't count the number of times I found him on his back sanding a bottom getting blueprinted or back in the service building.

Could some things have been done differently? Sure. But then again most times thats always the case. The reality is he was the "heart" of the body that "was" FPB. Now it's another brand out there. That simple.
And regarding this specific situation of him even having the ability to leave the company... management better be shaking in their boots. Not because he's going to build boats to compete on the production level, but because now it's because the "brand" is another me too.

But, hey good luck in the new year guys."
The truth, plain and simple. so are prices going to drop on late model used fountains or will I have to shop around for a Fas-tech Refuse to pay top dollar for a used fountain, even though it would be the same boat.
