    I dont think the Tattoo are in business ?
    Their web site news has only news up to Feb 2015. I think they tried to move factories, and just stopped manufacturing.

    BTW, for anyone who wants to DIY build, or wants to commission, a 26' PowerSailer to bug out, Tad has plans for a max 40 Hp outboard 26' Cat Schooner . . .

    The bottoms of all the water around NYC is full of all the billionaire/supervillan's secret lairs and escape subs already. There's a (century) long waiting list with the Illuminati for a berth. ;)

    James you're quite right, and the bottom of the Hudson in NYC also isn't safe for escape subs, here's pier 88 where the SS Normandie caught fire and capsized while being converted into the troopship USS Lafayette (AP-53) in 1942 . . . :eek:

    After the 1942 fire and capsize she was salvaged in 1943 and redesignated into a transport and aircraft ferry, and renamed to USS Lafayette (APV-4)
