Fact is Prostock is still quiet, Nordic95 is doing the talking...
No one is bashing anyone here.....just a difference of opinion... Nordic is waiting to hear from legal counsel, Ive already been advised....
If it goes to court is goes to court.....we both have settlement offers on the table, we both are passing on settlement offers right now....
Wait a minute.... you have a settlement offer on the table prior to litigating on the validity of the contract?
Ask your counsel if offering the guy a settlement was a de-facto admission that the contract is not binding.
Buyer looks for a boat...
Finds one online.
Never goes and looks at it.
Send $14000 to owner as deposit/payment.
Buyer never contacts seller after that?
I'd like to hear prostocks side of that.
With great power, comes great responsibility.
Something tells me that they should just go to court and this thread should be deleted. Our opinions won't sway Steve, and they don't matter in court.
If I wrote a check for $14K to someone and the deal fell thru for whatever reason I'd be calling them every day, probably like 10 times a day, show up and "meet" them etc. until I got my money back... I'd be like Stewey on Family guy!
So much time has passed and make a reasonable assumption the money has been spent...
If he wanted to file a complaint or get a lawyer involved doesn't he have to do it within a reasonable amount of time? Is 6 months too long to finally do something?
Personally I would give it back minus some "damages" but that's just me and I don't buy/sell stuff for a living.

After the deal fell thru Prostock was so embarresed about what he had done that he didnt want to show face here and bring up the subject.He did however seek legal advice and has a lawyer that feels they have a great case.But he didnt have the funds to get the ball rolling so he has been waiting for Steve to contact him hoping he would send some portion back.I know it sounds silly but hard times were bought up and Prostock felt bad even to ask for the money till now.You guys would really have to read all the info to understand like I do.I do encourage any thoughts on how this should be handled.Trust me, when I had been taken by a member of the board I also was ashamed and didnt want to make a big deal out of it on here.But as everyone that knows me can attest I speak my mind and walk a straight line.So I did make a fuss and received a deal.Thats why I feel compelled to try and help these two parties out of this bind.
