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.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.
IPYOA.com/Forum: Island Packet News coming in March (1/1)
The footnotes cite to "Personal phone call between editor and staff."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.  Suppliers are delivering materials and invoices are being paid. 
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.I've been checking there also, I sure wish someone in an official capacity from I.P. would say something.

Curious if you've heard from any of these folks? Any pictures or eyes on?I trust my source. Some of y'all don't, or don't trust me, which is fine.
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.

I just got a text that confirms what I inferred. Apparently the real scenario is leaking (not from me and not from my source) and the PR should be released shortly. I'm on distribution and when I get it I'll post it here. NFI.So still nothing from I.P.? Still nothing from secret sources that can't be named? Anybody hear anything? .......anybody?
What did you infer?
Read the currently/last 'Edited' account of IPY Wikipedia..in particular to citations 3,4,5 and 6
I've said before that I won't share what I think I know to avoid messing up ongoing efforts. There appear to be leaks in the industry. They didn't come from me and I believe they did not come from my sources at IPY. I have been told I am on direct distribution for the public release. I think that is a recognition of my honoring commitments.What did you infer?
Well let me clear up the ambiguity. In 2004 when I was boat shopping the then-new IP370 was on my short list. I developed a lot of relationships with members of the owner's association and with people at the factory. Even though I decided to buy a different boat I have maintained those relationships. There are a lot of good people and good sailors among the IP community just as there are among other communities including the broader boating community. Sure there are always bad apples. There are some here like everywhere else. Check my ignore list.I can't be the only one slightly perplexed by SVAuspicious's ambiguous devotion to IPY.
