Heard a rumor on FB that chaparral might be dropping the vortex line of boats, and vortex would be going out on their own. Has anyone heard of this, or is this internet shenanigans?

I wouldn't be surprised, a lot of Chap owners feel that the Vortex somehow cheapens the Chap brand. Early on when the Vortex was introduced the Chap community was up in arms because they didn't want a jet boat in the Chap line up.

One interesting side note and I don't recall how along ago they did, but the Vortex boats have their own website. No mention of them on the Chaparral page.

Yep, my local Chap dealer is not going to carry them. I guess that eliminates one brand of boat. Not gonna buy a 70k+ boat and have no dealer support. I’ve been through that garbage with evinrude.
