Default Good News from Carolina Performance

I am glad to hear that Carolina Performance is not getting out of the business. They are just dropping the Fountain line. They are still selling the Sea Pro fishing boats and the Cigarettes's. It would have been a shame to loose a very good dealer in our area.
By the way, they have a nice 39 cig with staggers in the showroom

I would say they gave a better product line with the Cig's then any fountain Reggie could send them will ever be.

Britt was Fountains #1 dealer2 or 3 years in a row. It is going to be Fountains loss.

My guess is that since Mercury is in the drivers seat and pretty much runs Fountain now, all the incentives are gone as any dealer compensation that was there. And if you do not do your dealers right, they will not continue to support you.

Steet - you are exactly right.

Britt is a friend of mine. It is not about the boats or warranty, etc. It is a business decision that Britt made, not Fountain. Their loss.
