IIRC the owners ran into some legal issues five or six years ago and barely escaped ahead of the law. They may have been apprehended I don't know. I don't think the shop has been reopened.

Funny you bringing this subject up.
When I was lookin for stuff re Darr a few days back I saw he sued a guy named Daniel Mintz.

When you look up his name on here it brings up threads where he bought or whatever Awesome Boats.

Then all of a sudden he vanishes.

If you look hard you will find 3 pages of legal cases in Missouri with his name on them.

I asked in another thread about this topic and no one responded.

Hulls and interiors were good. Rigging was the weak link IMO.
