WEST FRANKFORT, Ill. - Leisure Properties LLC, which manufactures Crownline Boats, has announced a temporary layoff of 206 workers at its West Frankfort, Illinois production facility.

The company says the layoffs are due a downturn in the market for stern drive boats that stems from unusual weather patterns around the country.

While Crownline Boats says the layoffs will be temporary, there is no timetable given for when the jobs will return.
