Re: C&C sold......
There was no mention of TPI specifically, only that USW had purchased J-Boat in December along with the other manufacturers I mentioned earlier.
USW owns the boat portions of TPI.
First they split the company into boats and not boats. Boats were named Pearson Marine:
Pearson Composites emerges from TPI split
Then US Watercraft bought those assets:
US Watercraft acquires three boat brands
US Watercraft doesn't own J-Boats, they just make licensed versions of them for the US Market. J-Boats doesn't make anything themselves.
It sounds like US Watercraft now owns Pearson, C&C, Alerion, True North, and maybe others. Hopefully they do some interesting work with these names.
