I bought a new to me Pacific Seacraft a week ago, so I am pretty bummed about this. Hopefully the company will emerge from Chapter 11 stronger with an improved business model. Regardless, I know I have one of the finest boats built and I don't regret having chosen a PSC. These boats aren't for everyone- they were never intended to be. For those with the courage and desire to go anywhere anytime, it would be hard to find a better boat to take them there. They are truly handmade American works of art and it would be sad indeed if he company is unable to continue operations. I really want to see one of the Perry 38's they are planning to produce.
This isn't about "should have bought a Catalina". There are people's livelihoods at stake here, there are people with a significant investment of time and money who would hope to have continued factory support, and there are people who have ordered boats in production who's investment and dreams are now just a little bit threatened.
Let's hope this works out for the best.
