I have a court date December 12, this was basically their way of delaying the inevitable. The "new part owners of a company with the same name" is playing defense for them on litigation matters, my PI says both are in horrible shape, Dunn and Bradstreet reports are available to anyone who wants them.....

I expect to win, met with attorney last week about joining the "other" outfit, will start pressing that in a week or so, also will increase my claim from $20K to $20K plus punitive damages. It is such a clear cut case both attorneys think I can win, and of course they get a cut of a bigger pie, so they are willing to try.

I doubt I ever see a dime, at this point it is no longer about money, it is about revenge, and I do not feel I have gotten my pound of flesh yet, not even an ounce..... I will win the court case, but collecting is an entirely new matter.... I doubt they have the financial strength to pay a claim for what they did...

So anyway, that is is, they quietly try to delay and delay, and delay, while I keep telling this story over and over and over. My attorneys would prefer I not tell it, but everyone agrees, as long as I am not lying, there is no basis for slander, so I choose my words carefully and never say something I can not document with fact. I am at the point I am willing to spend money to prove I am right, that is what I am likely doing...

In the end they are just dumb enough they do not know that the worst advertising in the world is a pissed off customer with a big mouth.....

on the other side, they have built some super nice stuff, but the % of nice to schit seems extremly high......

There was a 28 cat on a local lake here for a few years. Had a 575 in it and that thing ran HARD. I looked it over and it seemed to be built very well. It was no Skater but looked as good as many other manufacturers out there. The 28 cat also has some great lines to it.

I was also parked next to a 26 V this weekend and it was a great looking boat. I talked with him a bit and he was very pleased with the boat and the factory support.

A few members toured the factory in 2002 and they were very impressed.

They had a 38? Poker Run V down at LOTO a couple of years ago that was featured in Hot Boat. If you looked at the sides of the boat at the hull/deck joint around the engine compartment area the boat was not symetrical port to starboard. It looked like two different boats depending what side you were looking down. I believe the port side was fairly straight but the starboard side sucked in several inches. Terrible mold work.

My friend has a '94 29V. He bought it used from LOTO about five years ago. I have to agree that the construction quality is poor. You might of known the boat, it was called HOT HOT HOT.

I did hear of some construction issues in the early/mid 90's. The few boats I have seen were 2000 and newer and looked good. Like I said not a Skater by any means but better than many mass produced boats out there.
