The Aquanaut will definitely be missed, but for some reason it never became as popular as it should have been. Maybe it was because it's competing against the Explorer and there are a lot of them available used?
The used market seems to have plenty of Pintails, I wonder how many new Pintails Valley was selling.
Hopefully sea kayak companies aren't shifting to a white water mentality of a new boat/design every few years.
I suspect the next company to organize thier product line will be Current Designs. Lots of different models and a website that's a bit scattered. Also Valley is discontinuing the Naut but CD is making the Infinity? I've never seen one of them on the water!
