The credit crisis coming home to roost... this is probably just one of many... Tartan/C&C is in receivership too..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sorry if I'm not shedding too many tears over the demise of a German boat builder, even though they may have produced a nice product.

What I'm most concerned with is what's happening right here at home in the U.S.. In case you haven't noticed, every sector in the U.S. economy is going down the tubes. If you don't believe this, please point out any sector that's doing well right now (Don't choose WalMart cause they're just a small part of the retail sector, which is sucking canal water.)

In case you haven't noticed, our political leaders are spending TRILLIONS of dollars we don't have to "bail-out" anybody who's made campaign donations to them in the past. When the Chinese, or whomever, comes collecting on these IOUs, how does the Treasury Department intend to pay them? By printing more money and adding more debt?

I am ashamed that my post-war baby boom generation is screwing its children and grandchildren. My parents left us a land of opportunity, where a man could support his family, afford a house, buy a car and live the American Dream on his own income. What are we leaving our children other than insurmountable debt?

Please keep this in mind the next time you start feeling sorry for a foreign boat builder!

Well, with all due respect for you and your opinion, I am foreigner, and feel sorry for them..and have all right to do it..

They did make excellent boats, that kept the bar pretty high as far as performance and quality, and albeit being German, the sailing world is at loss, with them and also with tartan..

I feel sorry your Auto industry is in the state it is, but there is only one direction the finger is to be pointed at, for allowing that to happen...

Anyway..hope you guys pull thru...looks like Europe may be sinking too soon...the future is dark.

Personally, I try to stay out of political type issues. but the closing of the Dehler plant is a world wide issue, along with the US car biz, banking etc. This recession or depression is going to hit all of us around the world, some worst than others, some better, but it will hit ALL of us in some way shape or form.

My wife has not had a paycheck for 6 months, as her escrow biz has pretty much shut down with the home financial problems occuring. Lucky I have been busy thru now, but the next few months look slim...............

Dehler is being reconstructed

I think we will see that Dehler will rise from the ashes very soon. There's a lot of people working on reconstructing Dehler, as they have some great assets = really great boats!
The Director (CEO) of the company did some things he should not have done, and thus then employees (and others) filed for bankruptcy to get rid of him.
They'll be back!
