The real problem is volume of sales. Sea kayaks are not a high volume product line by any means, and even the heavyweight manufacturers of the industry occasionally have to cut back their lines, or lose money.
Just the facts. When customer's tastes change, so does what's available, and very quickly. Seen it happen many times over the last 20 years. Seen quite a few manufacturers go bust, too.
