Has there been any attempt by the family or anyone else for that matter to resurrect the business?

Don't forget the company owns the name and the designs (Though I wonder if anyone would ever register the seahorse with the tutu.) so you may get a cease and desist letter (or worse) if someone decides to push it.

John A told me he bought the company to get the designs, trade marks and names and historical data. He told me not much tooling was left although he made a strut for my 28 using a jig he had.

Maybe it's time for someone to buy the company. Using the resources left, the information from this forum and some people with skill the BigMs could come back greater than before.
