Good day, Lou
You are right, Etap was bought by Dehler back in 2009 and then Dehler bankrupted and was bought by Hanse. I doubt Etap was part of the package and belongs to Hanse. I do not see Hanse allowing the kind of nonsense that goes on ETAP site about doomsday:
Anyone with internet must have accessed: "How to survive 2012", based on the theory from Patrick Geryl, where he predicts how to survive the cataclysm of 2012. ....
How to survive 2012 ?
Special attention will be given to surviving the tidal wave with the help of unsinkable boats.
If we are able to convince some of the present and future owners to co-operate, thousands of people will certainly survive. Count for yourself: 6,000 boats in total were built in 2002. In 2012 there will be about 10,000. If we are allowed to use a quarter of them, i.e. 2,500, with an average of 4 persons aboard, then about 10,000 people would be able to escape from the tidal wave. That is more than enough to start a new civilization.
Much will depend on the co-operation of ETAP in order to get the addresses of the boat owners. Furthermore, boat owners will have to be convinced to participate. Most of them will possibly make an effort to survive and will be in their boats on the ocean on that particular date. In case they are not interested, we could possibly borrow their boats. I am counting on some captains who will motivate their colleagues to be a part of this plan. Without any doubt, this is the most likely way to survive.

So, if you want to survive buy an Etap
Doomsday was not on 2012, maybe in 2013 or 2014?
I believe the name belongs now to M.I.C. industries and strangely his manager Toni De Pape , "sees nothing unusual about featuring all ETAP endorsements on its website, even if they happen to be from survivalists. He says it was not MIC’s intention to make Geryl the new unofficial spokesperson for ETAP, but concedes that 'whatever helps our brand is OK with us.' "
