Sometimes people should listen to people that actually have experience in a subject being discussed. There was numerous times people tried to speak up only to be shamed out of a thread.

Yup, the post said Barker was out of business but contacting Kevin Barker yielded an answer in minutes that he is not out of business. He may end up out of business I dont know but I was relaying facts that they were still open as of the time of posting. Facts are facts. THT shouldn't turn into a little girl gossip corner. If the OP of the original thread had some facts to post that would've been nice.

I donít really see that as a fire sale. More like a realistically priced used one.
Barker May have made some bad business decisions but that doesnít mean the boats are bad or heís a bad builder. Some people can be really good at what they do but terrible at running a business and in this case that appears to be the issue.

maybe tbone...just seems like a huge depreciation on a $200K+ bay boat that is only 2-3 years old....i have skeeter bay boat so it isnt my thing. But to ignore the fact that this lawsuit will probably affect the value of his boats is probably a mistake.

Barker quoted me 155k for a 2016 (carbon fiber) w/ 400R and trailer but no tower and a 2016 with tower and 350 Verado but no trailer for 165k. I believe he quoted me close to 2 years to build new and those boats would run 185-200k new. Don’t quote me on the build time or new boat price. All I remember was thinking that’s way too long for us to wait, and dang them boats are pricey.

Call me crazy, but maybe boat builders should stick to just making boats. This nonsense of builders dictating how long you get to "own" your boat so that both of you can cash in on the resale value to the next goober who doesn't realize that the supply side of the demand curve is being set by the same person in control of the supply size and the price setting...but that's none of my business.

Default Wtf bs

I'm a lawyer myself in NJ and NY litigation lands and wonder why the whiny crap is on this site. Like litigation is won and lost on some website.
if I was deciding your matter youd lose for posting this crap here and inviting make believe lawyer responses.

So youíre a lawyer, and you think itís ok to decide a case based on how you feel about a post on an Internet forum, rather than the merits of the case? Sounds reasonable

Are you a good lawyer? You have contradicted yourself in just a few poorly written sentences. " Like litigation is won and lost on some website". Yet the next sentence you say it is.... Is this time wasting, circular talk helpful when billing by the hour and not by the result?

I'd like to see more customer experiences posted - good and bad - if we have to be subject to the unsubstanitated BULLSHIT that boat companies use to sell their products.

EXACTLY. And to think if you could have left it up you may have saved someone some headaches and/or financial loss. I'd love to see it reposted - as I recall you had an early Barker 26 with an F350 on it. You were free to sing the praises of the boat but then threatened if you posted anything negative?

Did the 26 have cavitation issues secondary to the ventilated tunnel?
