They stay in business because they are the Fountain dealer at LOTO. They sell enough Fountians to keep them going.

actually they stay in business because Raymond owns most all of gravois mills and rents it out even the post office rents thier building from raymond. at one time raymonds boats was a large boat dealer loto with popular brand boats scarab , fountain late 80's early 90's and sold most of the sport boats on the lake. around 96-97 fountain said you have to decide weather to sell fountains are scarabs ( fountains largest competetor at the time ) they picked fountains, charlene used to be the #1 salespearson for fountain ( she is about late 70's year old now, go figure. doesnt take a genius, most all the sales went through with her name on them not the salesmans name. Me coming from a automotive dealership background Raymonds had at one time all the pieces to be a dominating force in the offshore boat business at loto, if it just was managed properly, classic example of the times passing you by. they simple dont want to change.
