Re: Old mold

Appears to be. I heard that one of the locals wanted to make a few more Orions, so he acquired the molds. And there it sits....

Re: Old mold

Been looking up info on its history. Found one thing about it on a site talking about a boat show in Oriental in 2013.

Dave Simeon of Dawson Creek Boatworks, who announced at the show that he’s going to be making Flickas and Orion sailboats in Pamlico County. Dave’s bought the molds for the distinctive vessels formerly made by Pacific Seacraft. The new company, Ocean Craft, will operate out of Wayfarer’s Cove Marina and will give the county a production-boat business.
Then found a Facebook page for Ocean Craft, that doesn't seem to have activity since 2014. So I wonder if the business died out shortly after he acquired the molds. Too bad, if that's the case. Looks like only a couple parts were ever made, just from looking at the FB page.
