That's unfortunate especially if they lost a bunch of molds.

Sad to see that. Hope they get back up and running soon.

It was Sea Fox owners trying to take the spotlight off of themselves for a while.....

Local scuttlebutt is that the fire was in a "tooling" building. Hopefully, the damage can be recovered from quickly.

This is the 263FS line plant. I.e. final assembly and finishing. It’s a separate plant than The Summerville location.

Thoughts and prayers to all impacted.
