A source tells me a Guy named Gary Owens bought Alex Marine. He is the owner of Owens-Corning. He has a cabin on Lake Miltona. Doesn't sound like it will be either Crestliner or Lund.

There is a 'property for sale' sign on the southern part of the lot. Almost looks like they are either moving or shutting down. Can't imagine having many boats without that piece of the property.

A 'pretty reliable source' said it was Dick Owens from lake Miltona (Nebraska). A major steel businessman.

(bbbb)illionaire

Sorting thru paperwork could take them to the first of the month before new ownership is complete.

Should be no problem rearranging whatever boats he wants to handle and the great service people will remain.

One sales person may be gone. tongue.gif

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
