At the end of the day it's a he said/she said. I told Bill many times, I understand his frustration, I understand how much money it takes, I understand why he is pissed. All I asked was some patience.
I think boaters in general are very, very loyal people. I did not post for over 10 pages, but when I started hearing things like, "I wouldn't let Larry rebuild my lawn mower", or, " I wonder if he forgot the rod bolts", it upsets me. I have had everything from bone stock Mercury motors to Sterlings, and I feel my combo now is the absolute best, so yeah I defended my builder.
I'm sure in a month or two things will blow over. Although my Skater won't be done for Desert Storm, I will be there all week on another boat. If Bill wants to talk to me then, thats cool......if he doesn't, thats ok too.
Hopefully I will see some of you on the water.....
