triton will be around a long time the difference between triton an some of the other smaller brands that don't build the big number of boats was not quality or market share they were losing sales because they were not able to produce the product fast enough that is why they purchased the legend factory an a up an running work force.
Triton is not a smaller brand. At one time, when Earl Bentz owned Triton, they were the largest bass boat manufacturer by numbers in the USA.
The problem they had, which they stood behind, had more to do with the Ranger group messing with the tried and proven building process they had been using.
Triton did not buy Legend. Johnny Morris did. If Triton goes the way of Champion, Stratos, and Legend, it will be because Morris wants it that way.
Don't think it can't happen to Basscat and Phoenix too.
