    Doesn't suprise me since he has had dealings with the Chinese on Tiawan with Jefferson Yachts/KYS.

    Regardless, I hate to see Gibson go down. They are unique and well built boats, even though I don't want one myself. There are a couple of nice older ones on our marina row and I always enjoy seeing them.

    The Chinese are building some very stunning megayachts, maybe they can build a decent houseboat too?
