I am fairly sure that Tiara Yachts here in Holland is involved in the manufacture of these.

There is now a huge wind farm along Hwy 31 near Pentwater

The facebook page "bakken oil field fail of the day" has posted droves of pictures of bobcats and skid steers moving down the highway without being secured to the trailer atall... at least he tried...
