The captain was indicted on 17 federal charges.

There was another article last week about the pump modifications made. If this is true I would bet it was done under Herschend ownership. They were the ones who stretched them out. Pretty sure the ducks are done with.

https://www.kansascity.com/news/state/missouri/article220970640.html

I believe that...
 
If and When the Herschands did the "stretch" Modification,
If they did indeed change out the "bilge" Pump" system,
And IF the coast Guard inspected the vehicles at that time and approved them (Which they would have to).

Hershands would not be liable at this time.. 
Not their fault IF somebody else, Did not Maintain the vehicles (IF that is what happened), AFTER they sold them to another entity..

The people filing lawsuits are just using the Shotgun affect... SUE EVERYONE that had anything to do with the Ducks..   

I keep waiting for my notice, I usually do the ducks twice a year..  SInce I spent my money supporting them, I may be liable also :o

I wouldn't be surprised if you get a class action notice, informing you of your rights for being so traumatized that it could have been you.
