That would be all well and good if anyone at the factory could build a quality boat. IMO, the boats have outgrown the facility and area they're being built in. The labor force they have is no longer building the same quality boat that the name represented up until the mid 90's or so. Sometimes starting fresh is the best thing to do. Labor, land, and taxes are cheaper in NC.
