The Silverton factory had scaled down so much over the last few years...it was just around the corner from bankruptcy for awhile.

I like the styling of their 80's vintage boats...then they followed the Lemming look and overdid the Eurostyling thing to the point where their boats looked like cheapo spaceships.

A shame for the local economy...but good riddance to some of the world's ugliest boats.

Anybody else remember when boat manufacturers started coming out with fly-bridges and Luhrs had a screwed on sit-down fly-bridge? They didn't want to retool.
