WHY CAN'T I BUY AN ARGONAUT KRAKEN? I want it immediately, delivered tomorrow, lifetime warranty and for $99.95 with free shipping.
1. COVID 19 has changed all of us .....Don't need to tell anyone that but just in case you live under a rock....Businesses have closed or are still not back at work. 3 of the vendors that make parts that go inside the Kraken, Phoenix and Cyclone are NOT WORKING.....which means even if I was pushing wheelbarrows full of cash to their door they are unable to answer. They are small and medium sized manufacturing companies and I'm not going to waste my limited resources trying to find new ones or to look overseas.
2. COVID 19 has made liquid capital virtually unobtainable for someone like me. The cost to produce a run of the Argonaut Kraken regulators is HIGH! For you OG's of the Kraken scene you know I had to crowd fund the 1st run of them because it was so costly to produce. Until I can borrow short term money at an interest rate of less than 20% they won't be made. Only a fool would work their ass off to produce something only to pay back a bank.
So until we get this whole global mess straightened out that is the state of things here......I know I'm not the only one reading this who is going through a similar situation. So please have some patience and I'll get back to it just as soon as it's possible. I don't like disappointing customers anymore than they like to be disappointed but this is how the cow eats the cabbage at VDH right now. I hope this clears this up and will help to curb the BS emails and posts I have been reading about my eminent demise.
