    Not surprising. Big 3 auto production is down 33% this week. California realtors can't show homes. Restaurants, bars, clubs, salons all closed in most areas.

    Seems only FL's beaches are "Biz as usual".

    I noticed in the official Brunswick release they mentioned stopping it at "certain" boat and propulsion operations. I have to wonder if that includes the SeaRays and Mercury's built in Mexico or just the USA?

    They shut Atwood down over a week ago. One of the first bigish companies in Michigan to shutter from what I could tell. At the time I wondered if they saw weakness in their upcoming period and perhaps used this as an excuse to cut capacity. But now...many more are jumping onboard.

    I know with Regal and Group Beneteau those states are under stay at home orders....and building boats aren't essential.

    I can't tell you how many manufacturing colleagues are laying off people. We are starting to see some push outs till May. The lack of demand, leads to shutdowns, which will roll thru the economy for a while.
