    Full text available here:

    Brunswick Corporation
    (NYSE: BC) and the Walt Disney World(R) Resort announced today that they have
    partnered to deliver nine Trophy center console boats with Mercury Marine
    engines to New Orleans to support Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
    Coordinated through the US Marine Division of the Brunswick Boat Group,
    these boats will be turned over to the Federal Emergency Management Agency
    (FEMA), and used to shuttle refugees, officials and medical supplies in the
    devastated city. US Marine makes and markets Bayliner, Maxum and Trophy boats
    as well as Meridian Yachts.
    "We approached Walt Disney World because it has one of the largest
    concentrations of Trophy boats close to the affected areas of the Gulf Coast,
    and this would allow for those boats to be pressed into use quickly,"
    explained US Marine's Mark Zobel, vice president of marketing. "The response
    from Disney was overwhelming, and their cooperation will ensure that more help
    is on the way almost immediately. We are extremely grateful for their
    assistance and the urgency in which they dealt with this matter."
    Since 1997, Brunswick has been providing a variety of boats to the resort,
    as well as Mercury outboard engines, another Brunswick division. The
    Brunswick Boat Group's Logistics operations, working with a US Marine dealer
    in Bossier City, La., are arranging for quick transport and delivery.
