As i understand it they've just been bought out!
Not sure the new owner is aware of the baggage attached to his new venture!

I know the new builders well and think with the expertise they have in the industry they should do well with it.
The boatbuilder they have is very good at what he does.

I was just seeing what the views over the water was like as I have heard mixed reviews here on the isle of wight, and have had mixed my self as I have rigged a couple and been out testing in those.
