    Default Shockwave Boats status

    I am curious about Shockwave. I HEARD a rumor about them getting near closing their doors also. Some friends own a 25' Tremor and I told them I would inquire.

    Anyone know if they are doing well or not? I hope so. It is getting depressing seeing/hearing of these long-time boat creators going under. Sad.

    Seems like a lot of rumors going around lately about boat manufaturers closing down.

    I agree. That's why I want to try to clear another name - or not - that has a rumor starting.

    the only rumors I ever hear about that stuff are when I log on to this site. Never heard anything about these guys until your post. So I would think you are adding more to the spreading of the rumor then clearing anything up.

    So......this forum is not for asking questions? I thought that was all I was doing. Wait. Let me re-read my last two posts. Yep. That's all I was doing. Asking a question.

    The only stupid question is the one that doesn't get asked.

    I agree with you. If I was thinking about buying a boat or doing business with a company, I would want some current information. Especially in this economy.
    If I bought the boat or did the business and then that company went tits up................everyone would chastize me for not investigating and asking questions. So..........How do I ask the question if anyone knows the condition of a certain company, without creating a cloud over that business? i would do it the same way he just did, and hopefully get a bunch of feedback that dispells any rumor to the negative. That didn't seem to happen here. The lack of positive feedback just continues the rumor and makes it stronger.

    I just talked with a reliable source and Shockwave is doing just fine.

    Tell your friends to relax.

    It's just BS talk..................

    I haven't heard anything and I hope there doing ok.

    I think there 28' Deck looks great and they were at the OC show with there new 22' Deck. (Placecraft)

    Better question is why is shockwave making Placecrafts are they doing a co-op or did they buy the molds?
