We get a ton of advertising from boat companies and marina's. One marina sent us a coupon for a free overnight slip and when I spoke to the girl and asked her how she got our name she said they bought MI boat registration lists and mailed info to people that had 40' boats and larger. So lots of companies use these lists. Sort of makes you nervous, nothing is private.

Moral of the story if you are on a boat with someone you are not supposed to be with, make sure you hide from the flying paparazzi

(What do you think ?)

The pricing is great! I think it's so great that we have SOTW pictures framed all over our office and at our pads in Michigan and Indiana! You can't be the work. Also that DVD of 04 is pretty killer

Did anyone find a resolution with this company? I'm so freakin pissed!! They rented a helicopter from a local flight service, gave one of the low time pilots a junk camera and sent me the bill for $804.00! The pics look like they were taken with a disposable camera!!

Lets just also mention the helicopter was flying over water without floats and within 500 feet of the boat... both highly illegal.

Remember 1 a day every day to each of the 3 unions

If you have the N number of the helo, send a complaint to the local FAA office. There will be issues for the pilot.

These slime need to be stopped ..Im fed up with scammers thieves and non payers.. I do work for a company that is now 4 months in the rears and keeps making excuses that ill be paid when they get paid from there customers. I told them this morning " we all know thats not how it works" and unless I see a check by the end of the week , proceedings will begin.
She got awful polite on the phone, we shall see.
It just seems like EVERYONE is playing games nowadays.. They have to be taught a lesson or they will just keep doing it.
Hey DHlaw got any nice letters I could borrow
