    Perhaps it could be argued that while this grievance may be small, the topic is high profile ,with 6,227 views at the moment.

    Further,it could be argued that while LCM stands nothing to gain by responding they do stand to lose by putting themselves above it all. I'm of the opinion this board doesn't tolerate contempt. In fact ,do to the population of viewers on this topic ,how could LCM buy better advertising ,subject to their response ?

    Not just Marine, anytime something is pre-owned and a trade in is involved.

    What if the roles were reversed? Lets say LCM's boat was as described but the trade in wasn't. I am sure that happens a lot as well. For all dealers in the retail indusrty.

    A couple of years ago I was looking for a new boat. Found a Larry Smith Scarab that I was interested in located in Florida.
    The seller assuredd me it was "real clean" no scratches, mechanically perfect etc. I got on a plane and flew from Chicago to Florida to check it out and put the deal together. The boat was a total P.O.S.. I was disappointed ,but learned a lesson. If I had to do it again, I would have one of my OSO brothers check it out first before going any further .

    Yea but do you ever notice when some one is the "seller" its always clean clean clean. Its a joke how some people bullchit you about the condition like your not going to realize it when you get there in person to see it!
    Is this it ? Is this what I work for...

    4x4 is PRICELESS when you are slipping down a ramp backwards with no help in sight !

    I can understand LCM's no response on the net but I also understand Tony's willingness to start the thread. Most grievances like this should be taken care of in a private manner but they do educate us in the aspects of bidness dealings and human nature.

    My expeirence in purchasing the 3 boats I have owned all worked out good. My last one was with a dealer that had a good reputation and all I expected was a clean used boat.

    Tony, I hope you next venture into boat purchasing turns good for you and LCM, keep on keeping on.

    I guess we can consider this a lesson learned. Should have had a survey done or had someone look at the boat before you hauled your boat over there. There was another thread awhile back by a guy who didn't get a survey on a LCM boat and the engines were completely different than what he thought they were( I can't speculate on how they were advertised). That being said, no business in the world can give you a check for your expenses because you didn't buy their product, so don't hold your breath waiting. The words "success", "rich" and "extra clean" are all subjective and are defined differently by everyone. Good luck with the other boat.
