Re: Island Packet Closing Doors?

I decided to check and see if there was anything new on the IP Owner's web page. Not much, just that they hoped to make an announcement last week or this week.

I've been checking there also, I sure wish someone in an official capacity from I.P. would say something. Good luck to all involved. Heard another rumor (see rumor) that there would be a company known merely as Blue Jacket come from this.

Re: Island Packet Closing Doors?

Wonder who is editing the Wikipedia article. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Island_Packet_Yachts

Quote:
IPY continues in operation as of 24 March 2016 with construction ongoing of boats on order and for inventory for Island Packet, Blue Jacket, and Seaward Yachts. Employees are working and being paid. [5] Suppliers are delivering materials and invoices are being paid. [6]
The footnotes cite to "Personal phone call between editor and staff."

Phew! Glad that this anonymous Wikipedia editor has cleared everything up!

I wonder if this will become the new Tartan that seems to change owners/names every couple of years. I don't think IP is trying to get out of warranty claims, but it is a long term liability, so often the new owner does not take on the liability of the existing warranties. But I believe jacket was involved in that whole mess back then as well.

Seems strange as IP would seem to have the better reputation and image, even if old school. I will say it seemed to be Ross more than jacket that was the cause of the fall, and almost demise of Tartan, using phrases like "internet terrorist" to describe there customers.

Yep. And I reported myself up the chain for review.

I'm also (last I asked) the only person to report myself on SN.

I've written to two AGLCA Harbor Hosts and an SSCA Cruising Station in the area of IPY asking for a working hour drive by and pictures on a weekday.
Curious if you've heard from any of these folks? Any pictures or eyes on?
