If anyone is interested, he has a blog at the MFG company website. (Yes, they are still going strong - just not boats. And yes, they still make the bodies for the Chevrolet Corvette, including the latest and very carbon fiber laden 2014 model. Other products include cab bodies for many tractor trailer trucks, windmill blades, architectural fiberglass, and lots of other composite components. The Union City plant makes mostly the architectural fiberglass now.)

Here are all the MFG boat related posts from him - some great history here directly from the guy who really knows the story. Enjoy!

One of MFG's oldest businesses.

Been making trays since about 1950 or so.
