    I got an email from them. Both my SeaRays came from them, surprised they did this, guess we will see how things go.

    Got the email too. My thought was more "monopoly". Kind of like James River with John Deere. Hopefully they will retain the same staff. They are good people at Lake Norman.
    But none of this really matters to me. As I am boatless. BUT not for long I hope. There maybe a Cobalt in my future. :grin:

    Sorry, I did mean Hall marine in the original post. I'm not sure what this will mean either. I actually bought my searay from a searay dealer in Kitrell, NC (Overby's Marine), but have used Hall marine for occasional parts purchases since moving closer to their Cornelius location.

    I don't know Hall Marine and my only experience with MM was bad. So let's go to the nuts and bolts of business. Blackrock has an 11% stake in MM. You don't get to be a $12 Trillion (with a "T") success like Blackrock w/o being very good at doing what you do. MM is in the boat sales business. Period. IF Hall's success was built over time based on trust, fairness, and loyalty I don't think this move will fare well for the customers of Hall. I hope I'm wrong.
