Hopefully that customer got his boat.
I always wondered about that too

I`m sure Ray would rather be cruising in his new cat.

Anyone else besides me think that freeman should come on here and publicly offer a current build slot to Ray and offer a deal where he can pay after the lawyer takes his cut? Be a slap in the face to BBW and Iím guessing freeman doesnít have to worry about them being in competition with barker after Rays suit is settled. Win win and publicity for both.

Why should Freeman even give two craps about BBW? They will never build a CAT.

Freeman now has actual competition from boat builders that pay their bills and donít ďreallocateĒ customer deposits. That is who they should be paying attention to now.

Pretty big assumption that he'll even collect a dime.

I think ray said he bought a 39 Contender to hold himself over until he figures out his cat situation. I think from a boat standpoint he will be ok.

$10,000.00 deposit and Freeman will most certainly hold a build spot for Ray, hell they would hold one for Kevin himself, once check clears the bank. Wait is at 36 months on 34&37, not sure on 42's.

Compmillenia could easily deliver another hull to Ray and that is who I still consider the state of the art today. Cant wait to see what his quad hull will do if he got in the 70ís with T350 on a heavier one.

The Barker 26 Open thats been online for sale for 149,900 just reduced to 129,900. Saw it online earlier.... I believe it listed for 169 at first if Im not mistaken.... Well that escalated quickly. I wonder if people will begin to "fire sale" these vessels because of all the innuendo on the internet now. I sure hope some kind of remedy is worked out for the current Barker Owners. Theres alot of $200K boats out there to not have service or warranties. Feeling pretty good about the Pathfinder 2500 I have on order right now. Boy, if the OP's intentions were to bust BBW right in the stink hole, no lube... Congrats. I do believe you can claim mission accomplished!

Quite frankly, Billy has no place nor should he be brought into this shit show unless used as a model of how a boat company should be run.

Boat prices everywhere are starting to slip. History tells us these are generally highly depreciating assets. The entire western world has been printing credit for the last decade. As that slows down, you can expect to see some asset price deflation.

If you think the reason a BARKER boat has a price reduction is due to the economy …. you are mistaken.
