Well said George.......Over the years there have been many threads regarding this individual. Proceed at your own riskI pointed out his participation in a 'new boat building company' on here a few months ago. I was "called out as a troublemaker" by a few here, who don't know me. I stated that "I would not do business with that person", new boats, used, or parts. He offered a " mid $60's K turn key BRAND NEW tunnel boat" here, and bragged about the performance of a special one here. I know of three internet parts sales that have GONE WRONG when dealing with this person. I tried to help correct the communication problems between this person and his customers. The customers that I tried to help were NEVER SATISFIED. I am in Havasu, this person WAS in Havasu, I don't know if he continues to reside here. GOOD LUCK !
I remember when he screwed us, there were about four or five of us at that time. We were just a little planning away from a 'visit'. Probably shoud have.
The nicest thing I could possibly say about this guy is that you need to be there in person to get the parts promised and then give over the cash. Do NOT do it over mail, check, paypal, etc.
