P1 and Wall street

Perhaps P1 is the only thing the wall Street Journal could say expanded this year, weather it keeps on expanding in these troubled times only next season will tell, I for one obviously hope they do make it through these bad times with their great waterborn road show

...Brunswick in the meantime are not fairing that well downgraded to junk status

Brunswick is having a really rough time of it. They have made thousands of employees redundant and have eliminated several ranges of boats. Ten factories have closed with another seven closings planned for the near future.

Bayliner, the biggest selling boat brand in the world and also owned by Brunswick, closed four factories and operations will be moved to the Sea Ray’s, Knoxville plants, during what will be the second factory shutdown of the year, October 27 though January 5, 2009.

That's interesting. I always thought Searay was the biggest builder (highest volume by number of boats built)

It really aint looking good eh.
