Interesting article today in the Portland, Maine paper regarding boat sales. I'm not sure about posting links through the forum, but if anyone is interested in seeing it, just go to www.portland.com.

Here's a statement from that article:

"In 1999, sales in Maine totaled $60 million, and that does not include canoes or sailboats, the National Marine Manufacturers Association said. The organization estimates there is one boat in Maine for every 10 people compared with the national average of one boat for every 22 people."

I'm sure in states like Michigan and Florida, there has got to be at least that same sort of figure in terms of # of boats per people - probably more. Interesting way to look at it!

My buddy that sells Ranger's, told me their sales from the Cinti. Boat Show were up 50% over last year. He also noted that 90% were finance deals that don't always work. Regards, Jay
