I just wanted to say that you have a pretty informative blog and I will continue to check it out. Have a great day.

I agree that we'll lose the boat manufacturing jobs, but not necessarily that Gen Y won't want boats. I think the jobs will be lost because the wages are too high for the skill level.

People buy boats and cars for different reasons. Boats are a leisure thing. I live on the Great Lakes & boats are big around here. You either boat or camp. Those are popular leisure activities for the younger set.

Also, if Gen Y moves to the cities, I can imagine that "getting away" would mean visiting the great outdoors (or at least a marina or campground.)

By the way, campers are still made almost exclusively in America - and that market is strong. I think because people have different motives for buying them.
