    Ya know Greg, you're absolutely correct. My earlier post in response to ADD was my last post in response to him.

    Greg, FYI, we're taking the Seahawk off the boat Thursday in case you see the boat out of the slip that afternoon.

    This also made the 4 year degree obsolete. Now you must have a master's to compete. Why isn't there more support for skilled trade schools. Use your hands and save your money. God forbid any privileged millennial get their hands dirty

    Can anyone tell me why this sentence explains the problem? Let me help, then you shouldn't be a boater. If this is making your life strained then why are you still doing it. Mindset of the millennials

    In my view, and this is just my opinion, things will be better when we stop to send/keep manufactures abroad to reduce cost but at the same time eliminating all these jobs that could be potential buyers. What is the point to get products cheaper if nobody can afford anymore because their jobs are gone?

    You should have said this in the beginning and you wouldn't have had to put up all those graphs and stats.

    Your peers look at you and say you're 'lucky', that you lived in a warehouse and worked extra hours has nothing to do with it.

    Ignorance can be educated and crazy can be medicated but there's no cure for stupid.

    No, I don't think he did.

    The mods are deleting your posts to keep this thread on topic about Brunswick selling Sea Ray. You keep bringing it back to your charts and graphs. That's fine, just start a new thread to do it so we can talk in this thread about the impending sale of Sea Ray.

    It's winter, if you post your stuff in the Holding Tank you will get a lively discussion.

    Back to the original topic.........

    "Brunswick Corp. has had a “robust” response from strategic and financial potential buyers of its Sea Ray brand, which the company announced was for sale earlier this month.

    "We’re required to run a public process, being Brunswick, but I would say we’ve had very strong response from strategic and financial potential buyers,” Huw Bower, president and vice president of Brunswick Boat Group, told Trade Only Today. "

    "We’re required to run a public process, being Brunswick, but I would say we’ve had very strong response from strategic and financial potential buyers,” Huw Bower, president and vice president of Brunswick Boat Group, told Trade Only Today. "

    The first part of the sentence is misleading. He should know better than to say that. If it were true, we would be sharing opinions on the "Book" that they assembled to shop Sea Ray around. That book contains the Financials and forecasts for the brand and what similar companies are valued at.

    The fact they are making it public tells me now they privately were unable to find a buyer behind closed doors.

    It is hard to give tax relief to people who pay little or no taxes. The rich (i.e., taxpayers ) are always going to benefit from any cuts to rates. You have not lived long enough to understand what progressive taxes did to those who worked before Reagan was President. If we got a raise, we were pushed into a higher tax bracket. Between paying for government and double digit inflation caused by government policy, we did not benefit as much as you think. Nixon froze our salaries and many took pay cuts, myself included.

    "Doing great" has nothing to do with how many cars you own, where your house is or the size of it. Shallow people may believe this to be the case but it really has very little to do with being happy or successful.

    Generally speaking, hard working people are luckier in life. But even those who suffer more than their share of bad luck can be happy individuals. It has more to do with how you see things. It speaks to character. We have all experienced character building events. How you respond to them is important. Uncle Sam will not do much for you.

    As far as "rolling back the clock....." Right. Seriously? Where has that ever worked? As young people look ahead, they need to look for opportunities and not pine away for the good old days. The good old days are right now.

    Life tossing you a bunch of lemons? Make lemonade. Things gong great? Enjoy. You are here for a short time. How you spend your time here is your decision to make.
