The area's several boat manufacturers say they're being hit hard by the combo of home foreclosures, the economy slowdown, and high gas prices. But they also say they think they can weather it.

Several other boat makers in North Carolina and Columbia, but our local manufacturers (like Sea Fox, Key West Boats and Scout Boats) say that since they also have strong international sales they expect to, well, stay afloat.

Head over to The Post and Courier for the story.
