Not sure where to post this...or if anybody cares...but it was announced that Simrad is buying Lowrance for $215mm and Dennis Lowrance will run the combined enterprise with the Simrad CEO serving as his #2.

I always like watching how the business side of our favorite hobby works. I'm sure it's old news for some but I was shocked recently went I did a little research and saw exactly how many brands of boats that Brunswick owns at this point.

Also, did anybody see the LA Times article in re the LA Boat Show talking about how significant cash-out refi's have been to the growth in boat purchases in SoCal...just like the consumption in every respect throughout the US!

Interesting that Dennis Lowrance will be running the ship after the aquisition.....seems they got it backwards! Or maybe not?

i was thinking the same thing. might be time to look elsewhere when your company takes over another and you get demoted. x( never a good sign in my book. but what do i know, the only thing i'm the CEO of is my own life, and as of today, i haven't taken over any busineses.

hey aloharob, are you an attorney?

Gawdammit Bill...i thought you were a trusted friend. Now everybody will know the secret of why I'm always carrying around pocketfuls of crumpled $5's, $10's and $20's. Hey, Cabo 35's don't come cheap and we all do what we can to supplement the ol' paycheck.

Glendon - I'll PM you with a response so as to avoid having to air any more dirty laundry in front of the scurrilous likes of a guy named Wideopen...and by the way Bill...I don't for a minute believe that your AC handle comes from any fishing context...I've heard about you and your strange parties :).

i think my eyes are bleeding now. bill putting three smiley faces when talking about rob being a dancer. then rob adding a smiley face of his own after talking about bill's "strange parties." i'm afraid to see what's gonna be said next.

I think it's safe to say that we at the "Strange Parties" are "Gettin Pretty!"

Rob, Supplementing Income is admirable, and understandable in todays economy! Fuel costs alone this summer should keep you on the pole! I for one will keep a "Wideopen" perspective on your endevors! :D

i have a checklist of things i make sure i bring when i go fishing, and there are only two things on that list:

1. fishing license
2. thong

is there any other way to fish?

although i'm starting to think people are right about bananas being bad luck. every time i wear my banana hammock, i don't catch a damn thing. :)

actually, those are ass-less chaps. you just can't tell because i'm sitting down.

i'd say this post has officially gone down-hill and gotten completely away from us. it must be winter and nothing's biting.
