Happy Thanksgiving 2010!

Emmaline Riendeau’s Flat Stanley!

I have always loved Thanksgiving and now that it gives my two daughters a chance to come home from college, I love it even more. Thanksgiving is an awesome opportunity to spend time with family and, if you live in Florida, get out on the Nautique!

Besides my daughters coming home, my brother’s family will be joining us for Thanksgiving again this year and we will all be looking for time during the day to get out on the lake with our Super Air Nautique 210. We love the family time we get to spend in and behind our Nautique and we are thankful for it.

In addition to my family, I am also thankful to be surrounded at Nautique by an incredible group of people. Our employees demonstrate every day why they are the best in the world at what they do and our dealers continually make us look good by giving world class service to our customers. I am thankful for both of them.

Finally, I am thankful that Nautique has the world’s best customers. We have customers who appreciate the finest boat in the world and reward us by providing Nautique with the industry’s highest customer retention. Once you become a Nautique customer you’ll never want to leave and I am very thankful for our customers who appreciate everything we try to do for them.

Speaking of customers, most people in the ski world know Charlotte Melchers and Becky Lathrop. Charlotte is one of the most respected water ski judges in our industry and was the Masters Chief Judge for the past four years. Becky is one of the industry’s most respected drivers and loyal Nautique owner. They both live in my old home town of West Palm Beach, Florida. Well, recently Charlotte’s eight year old grand niece, Emmaline Riendeau, had a Flat Stanley project (if you don’t know what that is you probably don’t have kids at home but you can Google it) and she sent Stanley to Aunt Charlotte and asked her to arrange a ride for him on Becky’s Ski Nautique. Well, Emmaline, you will be happy to know that your Flat Stanley not only made it on Becky’s Ski Nautique but his picture has now travelled all over the world via the Nautique Insider blog!

I hope you too get a chance to get out on your Nautique this Thanksgiving. However, if the weather won’t allow it, I still hope you have an awesome Thanksgiving with family and friends!

On behalf of our entire Nautique family – Happy Thanksgiving!
