    That's the problem... You can't worry about repeat customers when you're on the verge of locking your doors at the end of the month... They might be screwing themselves in the long run, but it seems that some are being a bit unscrupulous to stay afloat.

    I don't agree with it, but it does seem to be the case.

    I think a good portion of the marine service industry once worked as carnival hucksters or door to door cancer insurance salesmen.

    Service is where the money is right now, not sales, so everything is being put towards fixing, selling parts and hauling boats and watercraft!! And trust me if you have a good marine business with a good rep you are busy right now!

    Talking It's not only you....

    Here's a response I got from a worldly business man that tries to defend service from a well established performance vendor.

Very little margine on this stuff so any mistake can kill you. If you want to know how businesses turn out that write orders down long hand on knapkins then look at how Trick turned out.


    Could give two phucko's... The sale was lost and will continue if adjustments aren't made in this small corner of bizz.

    Go ahead and purchase from Trick and companies like him then, you must feel good about a guy writing your order down on a napkin. I will go with a company that has history and credability with delivering parts. Bam is tops in the business, ask around, don't take my word for it. He has gotten me parts that no one else was able to find. Just because you can not use a computer does not make them bad.
    God is my Co-Pilot..... but I hit a mountain and had to eat him.
