Ben Ellison

Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    I expect the greatest amount of shuffle in the Northstar/Navman/Lowrance/Eagle area.
    I would expect them to spend a lot of this year consolidating as much of the admin/accounting/purchasing as possible, that’s the low hanging fruit, though somewhat constrained due to the variety of regulatory jurisdictions.
    The brand rationalization shoe will probably drop within a year or so, after all the senior management gets through playing musical chairs.
    In the end, the surviving brands will probably be stronger than they were when independent. Let’s hope none of us by the discontinued brand and they don’t cut service to save money.
