fire

Wow. Dave. This is the second major boat shop fire in the last 3 months. I too hope everyone is all right, and feel sorry for the loss of income for any business especially this time of year. Hope all is well with you. Bob

I think you are right, I heard the molds were for sale a while back. If I recall Wayne went back to lobstering.

I hate to ask stupid questions but didn't he close his doors ( go out of business) a while back ???

Thanks Bill, I guess I had old information, when I went to visit him years ago he was working part time as a sternman so he could get his full time license and get out of boatbuilding.
I spoke to Wayne and got a quote on his 32 back in May.
At the time he was figuring a December 2013 layup.
Too bad about the fire.
Hopefully the molds weren't lost.
