Pacific Seacraft

I saw this new wire this AM. I guess it doesn't look good for them....especially where it says they "failed to list one of its largest unsecured creditors, who is owed $775,000."

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

They may still be negotiating with that creditor... only time will really tell what happens to PSC in the long run. I just hope that anyone who had an order in with them and already paid money down on a boat gets their boat or the money back.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Failing to notify the trustees of any unsecured debt, let alone one that large, is a big no-no, even if they are under negotiation. This ain't good.

It is over...let's remember this is SAGA and PSC. Hopefully someone will buy the molds and keep the designs alive but it is clearly not a good time for quality boat builders.
Hope no one here has any money down with them.

CS is on the way back, well that is if the economy holds out. PSC is very popular, keep your fingers crossed, maybe one day they will return.

With the new bankruptcy laws that changed 2 years ago, the prognosis of a company coming out of it are less than ever. Congress change the laws after many companies that were somewhat solvent went into bankruptcy (Northwest airlines for example) to shed debt and restructure labor cost. Not declaring all debtors is a big no no. So I hate to say but it doesn't look good. I think it would be a huge lose for the sailing community if they went under. I am sure the other boat builders are smiling in particular Sabre, Valiant, IP and Caliber. If I had a cyrstal ball, it would say Valiant would buy the molds to round out their production line.
