Default Olympic Boats goes Bankrupt

Went to my favorite LBS (local boat shop) and danged if the whole place was 'chained' closed. Seems Olympic Boat Centers has fallen prey to the crappy economy.

they closed yours down???..that's amazing since it's just a chapter 11 BR...i was at our local repair guys last friday and things were busy and Jim the parts guy said they have to do things a little differently due to the BR but everything is still going strong....they are able to make payroll and keep repairs going ...also warranty work is still going strong....I do see less boats out on the water except for those little fishing boats that run on 10 gals of gas for 3 days....also..they are usually loaded up with beer and fishermen!!..
