Was just on another forum & came across a letter for Polaris from yesterday & it says they are shutting down Rinker & Larson. Sad day. My current Rinker is my 3rd.

That's just sad. Makes me wonder when the next shoe is going to fall and who it will be.

Sorry to hear that these brands are dying off. My first boating experience as.a kid was on my Grandfather's Larson.

Here's hoping that the virus issue resolves soon, our economy recovers, and we don't lose any more boat manufacturers (or other companies).

Scary times.

What's scary is they're keeping the deck & pontoon boats and killing off the 'actual' boats...Maybe this is the summer to unload the Party Cruiser?

Hopefully it works out for them. Guessing it was an expensive set of losses.

Good luck with the Party Cruiser
