    I just got an email from them saying the business is for sale! I had always planned to get there for training eventually -- looks like I've missed my chance! :( Anyone know what's up??

    The email says in part:

    Why are we selling now?

    Shawna and Leon see it as a good time to pursue their many creative ideas. Shawna is completing a 2 year degree program in Botanical Illustration and is soon to launch her on-line art website! Leon is creating and building beautiful wooden and mixed material greenland kayak art pieces that are ready to hang on a wall or in a gallery.

    How much? & What is for sale?

    The Body Boat Blade Brand, Logo, Website, school curriculum, and client list. The Pro Retail Shop - a successful retail store including inventory and store fixtures. The successful Body Boat Blade Global e-commerce website.

    Asking Price: $75,000 + current valuation of inventory and school equipment. Valuation of inventory based on available inventory at time of purchase. Store fixtures & school equipment can be purchased separately or as bulk purchase.

    A comprehensive sales/financial package is available upon serious inquiries. Creative timing of purchase and sales of components vs the entire package will be considered.

    Leon and Shawna are fantastic instructors - they will leave a big gap in the sea kayaking world out here.
    I was fortunate to take classes with them.
