Has anyone heard any news regarding OMC? Several months back, they were in the news for their financial crisis. Also, good news for Brunswick: it seems the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the lower district reversal of the $133 million anti-trust lawsuit. The lawsuit was brought on by a group of independent boat builders back in 1998. The local court first found Brunswick guilty and awarded $44 million, then trebled the damages. Brunswick put out a news-release November 6th.

I think the article also included something about Mercury (Brunswick) having to purchase a certain number of Volvo Penta Outdrives or Engines to put into thier boats. Volvo Penta has also started using composite props OEM. Lots of useless information for all interested.

Addendum to earlier post:

In this same press release it was also announced that the sale of the other divisions (Zebco, igloo, etc.) was called off. No explanations.
