This seems to be a long story, and I'm quoting from what's left of L&A/Seafaring's website (the forum). Apparently the new L&A owners only leased the Lost Soul from its current owner and were planning to live aboard her themselves except when BB was using it for promotions ... they seem to have gone missing and the guy who bought the Lost Soul from BB five years ago is apparently on his way to take it back. BB says he himself hasn't seen the Lost Soul himself since the Oakland Boat Show.

Among other problems, BB is also a "brokesailor" now ... facing bankruptcy.

DJ and Joe (two of the new owners) used to have a blog for their own sailboat (S/V Wyvern), which hadn't been updated since October and was pulled off the Internet June 10 (oh, wait — it's still in the Google cache).

At any rate, thus far they've pulled a disappearing act. Sextant Publishing's website is for sale via GoDaddy (they took it down early this week, with the most recent Google cache June 17) and the L&A ship's store went into maintenance mode at 9 p.m.-ish June 19.

And there used to be two other people in this Sextant Publishing outfit, but I've no idea where they got to. They don't appear to be listed on the most recent Google cache of Sextant's website.

Sounds like a good fight is brewing. Love it.

Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

What could have BB been doing that would warrent Sextant publishing to close its doors and go belly up? If he was in breach of contract why would they not sue for damages and keep on going?

They didn't interview Bob directly, you may have noticed. And Lat38's publisher might not be out to tell both sides equally — he thinks L&A is somehow "intruding" on "his" territory.

Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

Oh yeah, definitely a good fight. I'd hate to be holed up in a Motel 6 with a bunch of computer equipment and Aeron chairs. That sounds depressing.

Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

Posting from Bob Bitchin's forum reveals this little tid bit about DJ, Joe and their S/V Wyvern.

Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

Other postings from Bob's forum (including the Events Wench thread linked above) reveals what happened to the other two investors in Sextant — frog-marched out, their money gone, with nasty claims being made about their lack of business skills. Hmm, this sounds familiar ...

Kim Paternoster (who apparently has pretty serious business chops, from what I could Google) is in fact posting on BB's forum ... she also lost her investment and is also pretty steamed.

If you'd just crossed a guy who used to run with the outlaw biker crowd, wouldn't you hole up in a Motel 6 and hide?
