    Shipworks / Warren Gone

    Seems as if I was correct - local papers here in Brisbane are advertising the auction in liquidation of Warren / Shipworks tools and molds. Great tax loss and money washing system while it lasted. They still owe me 6 months salary and payouts but like everything else - Roth and Herman are bottom feeders
    Hope you guys get what Karma provides mate

    LOL, I am looking at the ex-Shipworks shed from my cabin window. Shipworks is no more. Aluminium Boats Australia now occupies the shed. There is still a bit of a s-t fight on the horizon between Shipworks and Brisbane Marine Industrial Park as the word is they haven't paid their rent or waterfrontage taxes in quite some time. Hopefully ABA doesn't get burned in all of this. I worked in the shed last time I lived here when Brisbane Ship Construction had leased one side to build 4-38M catamarans for the Thames in it. The last Warren Yacht, an 87 IIRC, left the shed a few weeks ago with a homeport of Melbourne on the back. There are no more "Shipworks" employees on sight, though an older 72' or so Mangusta that has no drives and was a generally worn out trade in on a Warren, is still in the south side of the shed as well as another non ABA boat ot two paying rent to Shipworks.

    There should have been two 87's under construction when they went under. Any idea where these boats are at?

    One was completed and left a couple of weeks ago, the other in still in its molds, and was sold, with the molds, to I believe Mustang boats today. I'm pretty sure they also got the 7x' molds. I'm not sure if there was any product in them. Bargain basement price to....
