New Found Metals is in bankruptcy?

New Found Metals is in bankruptcy? If itís true it means another source of bronze hardware down the drain.
All the best,

They filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which means re-organization, not liquidation.

southerncross31 is on a distinguished road
I have 4 ports on order from them and i got nervous, so i called them and talked to the owner. Apparently the Beckson guy is suing them on a patent infringement on the rain gutters on some ports they stopped making years ago. He sounds like a real jerk off (beckson guy). All of the legal issues have caused them to run out of money. It is a clear case of someone abusing the legal system to push a competitor out of bussiness. He can't match their quality of price so he is trying to screw them! Their ports are awesome. I have 4 in already and they seem very solid. At 189 each for ss 4 by 10's it's a great deal. The ownwer assured me that they will continue on as always, so their products will still be available...

Does this mean you can still order from them? I have 12 installed on my boat and they really are very good. I forgot to buy the screens for them and am now a bit worried. First class product, no problem with the install or leaking of any kind.
