  5. Buyer beware!

    PB Open Water
    Just a heads up if you ever contact stully1 on the boards to purchase an item. He will most likely sell it before you can make an offer, even if he's offered to meet with you. Then he won't answer your reply when you try to contact him. I thought boaters looked out for boaters, I guess it...

  10. Buyer beware!

    PB Open Water
    A few years ago, I went to a performance boat shop in south Jersey (don't think I should mention the name) to buy a set of CMI headers. I gave the guy the necessary measurements for the tail pipes per my set-up, and that was that. Three days later I get a call that my stuff was in and ready to...

  17. Buyer Beware?

    Jet Boats
    could be. I've had quite a few people ask me about others rebuilding their pump for them. I say the same thing over and over, "if it's a friend helping you do it, have at it.
