Hundreds of surplus items were auctioned off Wednesday by Brunswick Boat Group at its Sea Ray plant in Tennessee.

The company offered for sale items such as truck tractors, upholstery and sewing equipment, and industrial fans to a 1971 Cobra - the first boat Baja Marine Corp. ever built, according to an article in the Knoxville News Sentinel.

Dan Chips, director of processing facilities engineering for Sea Ray and organizer of the auction, said the equipment is mostly surplus goods from a Brunswick Boat Group downsizing of its logistics division that already has occurred.

The auction is a way for Brunswick to get rid of items it no longer needs and make a little money to help its cash flow, he said.
