I have heard that they were purchased by the comany that makes Cajun
fishing boats. I am not sure if they will continue Production, but I
wouldn't know Why not.

I heard this from a Hydrodyne shop.

This would surprise me as the company that owns Cajun is Genmar Marine and
a few years ago they bought Ski Supreme out of bankruptcy and turned them
over to their Wellcraft division. Within 2 years they had quit making them
and send them to the Cajun plant for one year before giving up on them
totally. They finally sold the molds to a West Coast company and they are
now building them.

So I do not think they would make the mistake again of going into to the
inboard ski boat boat business. Something that they are not capable of
doing.

By the way Genmar owns these boat companies:
Ranger Bass Boats
Glastron
Larson
Crestliner
Lund
Wellcraft
Hatteras Yachts
Cajun

I heard last week that COBALT bought the two inboard molds from Hydrodyne
when they closed down.  I heard that COBALT thinks with TOYOTA entering
the inboard market next year they believe they should have an "inboard to
sell also".  Its amazing how many different companys have come and gone
and come and gone again in the inboard industry!  Nothing against
Hydrodyne, but COBALT probly would do better to start from scratch.
