The thing with LP certainly in the UK is that they dont actually build the hulls (I believe). This is done by a 3rd Party. LP then fit them out and distribute them (if you can call putting a few bags of parts in them 'fitting out'). I do see a 'new' company being formed but if LP has gone 'bust' then it means that the UK and Eur trade mark is up for grabs. Perhaps the class should purchase this, they can then approve a 'new' manufacturer to use it and build boats under livense (subject to the relevant other agreements being put in place).
