This seems to be a long story, and I'm quoting from what's left of L&A/Seafaring's website (the forum). Apparently the new L&A owners only leased the Lost Soul from its current owner and were planning to live aboard her themselves except when BB was using it for promotions ... they seem to have gone missing and the guy who bought the Lost Soul from BB five years ago is apparently on his way to take it back. BB says he himself hasn't seen the Lost Soul himself since the Oakland Boat Show.
Among other problems, BB is also a "brokesailor" now ... facing bankruptcy.
DJ and Joe (two of the new owners) used to have a blog for their own sailboat (S/V Wyvern), which hadn't been updated since October and was pulled off the Internet June 10 (oh, wait — it's still in the Google cache
At any rate, thus far they've pulled a disappearing act. Sextant Publishing's website is for sale via GoDaddy (they took it down early this week, with the most recent Google cache June 17) and the L&A ship's store went into maintenance mode at 9 p.m.-ish June 19.
And there used to be two other people in this Sextant Publishing outfit, but I've no idea where they got to. They don't appear to be listed on the most recent Google cache of Sextant's website.
