Is anyone familiar with what happened to this company? No reply to email, no phone number on their website. It's a great product for a small dinghy, as the steering is held above your legs with no console in the way. Admittedly, there are times where I would just as well lose all the weight of the seat and steering and go back to a tiller, but it is fun and easy to cruise around anchorages.

I have one that came with the second hand dink that I bought a few years ago. It needs a part and I can't track down a supplier.

Rob,

That is bazaar. I just checked again and phone numbers are not there on my Safari browser.

Thanks for copying the number. I just tried it and it was busy. Also odd for a business number, but I will try again. They never replied to my email, which I can see on their site.

Just got through. Turns out the company did close its doors and these guys just picked it up. They are going to call me back to see if they can get the part that I need.

Thanks again Rob.
