Luhrs or this thread? One will be around in 2020, and I'm not putting my money on the former.

That's partially true. Here's the rest of the story.

Luhrs Marine Group stops production

Posted on 09 February 2012

Luhrs Marine Group - the builder of Silverton, Luhrs, Mainship and Ovation boats - went into shutdown mode beginning Monday, the company confirmed to Soundings Trade Only.
The Millville, N.J.-based company said in a message to its dealers that it would shut down production for 60 to 90 days to allow boat orders to accumulate in its pipeline.
“As everyone will agree, we have all been affected in some way or another by these hard economic times the past three years,” the company said. “We have fought hard to avoid this decision, but it is the best solution to the current state of affairs.”
The company told its dealers, “We hope you will continue to promote our products and keep in touch with our sales team so that with your help we can again start producing the excellent products of the Luhrs Marine Group.”
The shutdown does not impact Florida-based Hunter Marine Corp., which is still in production.

That said...

Surely you could have started a new thread instead of digging up these old bones.

So if you had a piece of crap boat you would just keep it and not sell it to someone else? Man you are my hero.

I never saw the video of your boat listing while it is running. Can you post it up? I would like to see it.
