Pacific Seacraft - What happened

Anyone know what happened to all of the Ericson information at the Pacific Seacraft site? Looks like they are/have re-designed the site and the Ericson links are no longer available. Too bad - there was lots of good info and a wealth of info in the discussion forum.

There is some discussion on the ericson owners website about this, but no real answers as to what happened. Seems like Pacific Seacraft see their market heading in a different direction. Too bad.

PSC filed for chapter 11 bankrupcy in May 2007.
Lots of commentary in a thread at EricsonYachts.org: The Starting Point on Ericson Yachts!.
Has PSC given up on Ericson? - EY.o Information Exchange

They retreated from Ericson parts and information support some years ago, and for reasons known only to King Neptune, decided never to build or market newer designs aimed at their thousands of enthusiastic Ericson Yacht product owners. Quite Sad... and equally mysterious.

Ericson tooling destroyed

There are no Ericson molds or tooling left. They have been destroyed.

Reported by Glyn Jusdon of Santa Monica, CA, a repository of Ericson manufacturing documents known to exist until several years ago had been disposed of by Pacific Seacraft. An apparent decision not to release that intellectual property must have been made. Glyn had been attempting for a number of years to gain access to that information.
