I think they are still performing warranty and customer service functions.
I can't find the article now but last evening I was able to find an interview with the owner and they are indeed planning on making some changes to the ships systems in some ways - although it sounded like they didn't quite know what those would be. Additionally, they are already selling an upgraded interior, and there is mention of new generator options, better air conditioning and switching off the propane fridge to an AC/DC variant.
If they could improve the steering and throttle cables that would be a plus. I don't see the outboard leg as being a problem as it is now... all engines and transmissions have issues given enough time. Although power outboards, we have had Yamahas, Evinrudes, and Hondas... all with eventual issues and expensive maintenance. I guess the only engines we didn't have problems with were our dual Detroit diesel inboards.
