Default What happend to Chief Powerboats?

I was just wondering if Chief has finished any of their boats yet and if anyone has tested them? I haven't seen anything posted about them for a while and I was just wondering.

steve that I don't know. I do know the design has been tested, not sure if they have ever been produced before though. Saw some pics and they look pretty good.
