    Talking Anybody heard any good rumors lately?

    I've heard a bunch. Most of you have probably heard by now that I have decided to shift my focus away from the boating industry. Ultra Boats will still be available from Ultra Performance Center (Mike Harlan) and Inland Ultra Boats (John D). I will still help out with some designs and sales every now and then, but I won't be invloved with the day to day operations. The economy hit us hard these last couple of years and the sales aren't strong enough to justify me trying to use this to support my family any longer. Lately it's been my family supporting Ultra and it should be the other way around. I'm also just burnt out. I want to spend more time with my wife and kids. I've made many friends over the years in this business and I'm sure I'll see a lot of you out on the water.

    I'm probably heading up there Thursday. Although I here that the Tap Out girls will be back again on Saturday. So I might just wait until then.

    Default JW,

    I want to say thank you for coming up here and telling us all yourself... We have hinted towards getting someone to spill the beans and I know its not easy to do. The economy just does not support the hard work of those in the industry and you are worthy of more! I look forward to the times we run into you and your family in Havasu and hope for better times. Your family is most important, take care of them first!

    Don't be a stranger, you know how to keep in touch.

    Good luck JW. This economy has given us all a swift kick in the ass.
