Sorry for the delayed response. After nearly a year of trying to put a deal together in BC we have partnered with the guys at NMI in Bellingham to build our boats. You are correct about the state of the BC boat building industry.
Solid choice, build the brand back up with qualified people. Hopefully you will be able to bring production back to BC at some point but governments here have to wake up and see the differences in what the US offers investors. I believe Tuff Trailers is Canadian owned but was basically given land in WA to start building trailers there! Looking forward to seeing your boats on the water!
