Sorry. What I meant to say was I know where there is beautiful TG sitting on a gorgeous new trailer that we could drive slowly by, back and forth, to look at from the safety of the paved road. I did not mean to imply that said vessel might be available for use (other than visual enjoyment from a safe distance) without the owners consent.

Frank
Please sir, may I have a ride?

Cuda has an ingenious way to steer "Big Yeller" when one motor dies:

He has Debbie put on swim fins, she goes overboard and grabs the tie bar, then to steer Cuda just yells, "left leg, right leg, left leg, more left leg, etc."

I'd verify all other clerical issues that you were promised were taken care off also... You know in case your "getting lied to" thoughts turn out to be exact, it might apply to other areas of your deal.

I have steered a couple of friends away from him that have gotten nice rides elsewhere and will keep doing that, since he treated a couple of friends of mine badly and acted like a jackass on an easily resolvable issue I had with his outfit. Very unfortunate indeed, but alas I'm not in the boat selling business so it did not affect me much... a measly $4k. As a businessman I am sure he assessed the losses attributed to his less than serviceable attitude and is happy to live with the lost profits.
