Merdian Yacht (Bayliner) Plant to Close...

As reported in the Seattle Times - It looks like that US Marine will shut the old Bayliner plant in Arlington, Washington by the end of the year laying off most of the facility's 790 employees - due to the economic down turn. This plant builds Meridan yachts which sprung from the Bayliner yacht line....Arlington is the home of Bayliner.

The real question is ... who is going to take center stage and use all that floor space at the Seattle Boat Show this year since(apparently) Bayliner, Merdian, and Olympic Boat Centers have all gone away?
