What motivates people to make statements like these? It's this guy's first post on WW too!
I guess some people like spreading negative press with 3rd party information.

Harold I didn't make any false statements in my post. It does bother me, however when people appear to attack certain companies that have been very sucessful through the years.

The other thread on that site about this topic provides some "interesting" reading. I just have to laugh at some of the input.

That's right!
But, you won't be able to afford as many packs of Depends as you once did. You won't have the money to pay for them, paying for repairs on the boat because the warranty is void. Boat parts will come from the Salvation Army Thrift Store and the local zoo will have to feed the animals with Food Stamps.Your beer won't be as cold for lack of money to buy enough ice, you'll have to barter with the local moonshiner for boat gas, your drug dealer will threaten to file for bankruptcy and apply for bailout money! When will the madness stop?

MasterCraft last week laid off about 110 workers, or about a third of its workforce, from its production and administrative facilities in Vonore, Tennessee. The builder makes high-end wakeboard boats and cruisers.
The company said that about 200 employees will remain at the facility. Those laid off will not receive severance packages.
John Dorton, Mastercraft president and CEO, told local news sources that the layoffs happened because of a decline in wholesale credit availability to dealers. "The atomic bomb that has hit the marine industry is the lack of wholesale floor plan financing," Dorton told the Knoxville News-Sentinel. "We've seen wholesale credit providers drop from five domestically to one." That has not allowed dealers to order as many boats, Dorton said, so production has suffered.
"The 2008 model year that ended June 30 was a record year for the company. We were building 20 boats a day," Dorton said. "Starting Monday we will be building five boats a day, which still makes us one of the industry's highest-volume manufacturers. It's just terrible out there."
Last year, the company employed about 570 workers. It had a previous round of layoffs last August and another round in February.
Behind Sea Ray, MasterCraft is the second-largest boatbuilder in the Knoxville area.
"It's a tough, tough time right now. I don't know where the bottom is," said Dorton. "But we're still seeing decent retail activity worldwide. Our market share continues to grow significantly."

True or not true, who cares!?!?!?!?!?!?! I read through the threads about MasterCraft and just think to myself "Wow, these guys has a lot of time on their hands" (Says the guy that spends 50% of his work day on TT)


Wait until there is proof out there. I personally hope for the best for every company out there during these times.... business sucks for everyone right now.

"its a cool trick but its not very stylish"... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA YES IT IS!!!... HE'S THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD THAT CAN DO IT... its like either those guys will criticize you for doing 9's by saying you have no style or they'll criticize you for doing a backside 1 60 ft into the flats saying you aren't technical... honestly there's a lot of good info over there it's just dang near impossible to find it through all the hating and bashing going on...

Local Monaco Coach RV company in trouble. 6 cent stock price, $1.8 million market cap? 2,000 laid off! Yikes :o:(

The New York Stock Exchange announced today that it has suspended trading of Monaco Coach Corp. and has removed the Coburg-based company from its list.

The NYSE said it based its determination on Monaco's shares trading "abnormally low." On Monday, Monaco closed at 6 cents, with a market capitalization of about $1.8 million.

The exchange had warned the 41-year-old recreational vehicle and trailer manufacturer in January that it risked delisting because its stock had fallen below the trading minimum of $1 for more than 30 days.

On Monday, Monaco announced it had begun permanent layoffs of about 2,000 workers, leaving 140 employees remaining.

If the company cannot find a buyer or secure new financing, more layoffs could be expected within the next two weeks, said Craig Wanichek, the company's director of investor relations. Monaco also said there was the potential for plant closures or a complete shutdown of the business.

You may be talking about Bentley (not Bennington). I own a Bentley and supposedly they quit paying Mercury Marine for motors and they are toast for the time being (original owner is supposedly considering taking it back over). Another company that got bought out by new owners or Private Equity firms that proceeded to load the company up with debt.

well he wasn't trying to be a jerk at first... then he saw it bugged me a little bit... then he was pouring it on... then i got ugly and reminded him that he always bought crap and i held out for the good stuff and if he wanted to talk about boat prices then he could buy his own the next time he wanted to wakeboard... that kind of squashed the discussion there...

I have worked with people like that- always pushing people's buttons and it sucks. I also worked for someone who constantly talked about all of the cool things he had, while paying us squat. He still does it when I talk to him and I haven't worked for him in over 20 years. He also says "I could have gotten it for less" after someone says they bought or had something done for them, even though he knew they were planning to do it. I made the mistake of using one of his referrals for something and it was a complete cluster flop. Absolute debacle. He buys beat to crap stuff, fixes it badly and quickly, then looks at it like it's made of gold.

haha that's the funny part... we both own houses... i'm currently paying him rent... i bought a house when i first moved to the area and i have it rented out... its an older home i bought for this purpose... just fixed her up enough to get a good rental fee out of... like i said i'd rather save up for the good stuff before buying something permanent... basically iots such that right now (as long as the house is rented) i have enough that it covers my rent to him and the mortgage... not a house i'd normally want to live in per se... so it works out... i live for free and someone else pays for my future house
