I agree it was during the downturn. I cant see the future but... even I could see the economy was crap and it did not look like it would recover anytime soon. Seems they took a gamble and continued as usual.
I may be wrong but it appears that Skater, Nortech, Outerlimits and a few others seem to be expanding there product lines and selling boats or restoring existing customers boats. Especially Skater!
