While reading Schnitz's nitty column on boycotting Exxon, I ran across a notice that the Prez of Correct Craft resigned and went to Sea Ray.... I think it's so he can sit in his office and watch what Mastercraft is doing across the cove in Vonore!!!!!!! ;)

Here is the schnitz write up:

Position Wanted: President, Correct Craft 4/22/2006

Terry McNew has resigned as president of Correct Craft to return to Sea Ray Boats as its senior vice president of product development and engineering.

McNew spent most of his more than 20 years in the recreational boating industry with Sea Ray, before joining Correct Craft in Orlando, Fla., as president and chief executive officer in 2004.

During his tenure at family-owned Correct Craft, he led several key initiatives, including the design and construction of the company’s new headquarters, slated to open in June. The 217,000 square foot-building includes corporate offices, manufacturing, research and development and engineering operations.

“Terry brought a systematic approach to our manufacturing and development processes which has made us a stronger company,” said Walt Meloon, former president and CEO, in a statement. “He has put the processes and people in place that will ensure our next 81 years in business are even more successful.”

Correct Craft, founded more than 80 years ago, makes water ski and wake board boats.

Lovett & Lovett Associate of Dayton, Ohio is conducting the executive search for a successor. Meloon, who retired as CEO, is chairman of the executive committee.

McNew rejoins Sea Ray at its production development and engineering office in Merritt Island, Fla. He will work closely with Gary W. Zimmer, who most recently had been the vice president at PD & E. Zimmer returns to the position of vice president - quality and manufacturing technology. They will report to company president Richard Stone. Sea Ray, a Brunswick company, is headquartered in Knoxville, Tenn.

“Terry’s marine experience, executive management capabilities, and seasoned insight will help ensure Sea Ray continues to solidify our position as a leader in the pleasure boating segment,” said Stone, in a statement. Sea Ray manufactures more than 40 models ranging from 17 to 68 feet.
