    Aside from massaging the commercial end - what the hell is out there...
    Just going to lend some thoughts of my own toward further discussion...
    The millionares who make money off of others money are there - but they are tightening their belts too...
    The fisheries are dead...
    I have no interest in big stereo wake boats - that is covered...
    The next top end is based in history and fact and maturity and just plain boatbuilding...
    Narrow beam - long waterline - wave fighting flare - single diesel...
    What was - what worked - aside from burning Dino Fuel - is coming back - and thank God for same...
    I get a good kick out of the 'yachties' - who look at the numbers from commercial work boats that have to work to a bunker load and still make profit - they then wonder why their boat is an ********...
    It makes me smile...:)
    It makes me smile a lot...:)

    Except for racing, there's been damn little optimization. We'll see more of it.
