Lee's Tackle is also moving to Burgaw NC about 30 mins north of Wilmington. Owners are selling out of Miami due to the high cost of land, shortage of labor and the rat race in Miami. The should open the plant in late 07 early 08. Seems we are doing something right, as long as they can get labor that speaks English!!!!!!

I boat up the Cape Fear River in Navassa where the factory is and it's a nice stretch of river right next to the Navassa train bridge. Looks like a nice facility with the ability to splash some big boats into the water there with a nice cruise down the Cape Fear river to the Intracoastal and the Atlantic. /we here in wilmington look forward to the job openings for those looking to expand their careers into boat building!!
:thumbsup:
