Question What has happened to Barker Boatworks?

Does anyone know what has happened to Barker Boatworks and Kevin Barker? There are many posts dating back a year or two, but we were talking to him as recently as several weeks ago trying to get some factory support. Now, nothing.... what is most curious is that the phone number for the company shown on their website is the same as Kevin's cellphone number. Not a good sign, when all voice comunicaations for a boat builder goes through the owner's cellphone, indicating there are no connected landlines. Sounds to me like he is shut down. Can anyone in the Sarasota area confirm my suspicions?

Last I heard, his counter suits against Wilie are going before the jury soon.

So... just out of curiousity...

Are we supporting Barker or not supporting him as a result of the cat money that disappeared?

Here we go again. I do believe the company number has always been his cell. Whenever I have called he was quick to pickup or call me back.

Doesn't look like a rumor to me!




Who is "Strike Force Seven"?

Anyone willing to make a higher bid and go in to the boat business??
