Crownline Boats will not resume full production at its West Frankfort, Ill. facility today, as it had previously planned.

"Currently active personnel will continue to serve our dealers and customers; however, production will be deferred pending resolution of Crownline's previously announced initiative to secure investment capital," the company said in a statement.

Crownline shut down production in December and had originally planned to reopen in March. In March, the company announced it was again pushing back its reopening until June.
