Outerlimits can't beat Fountain out on the kilo course so they are trying to win the prize for who's boat looks more like it's sinking at the dock,, I definitly think OL won this one..

I couldn't say if he would or wouldn't have. I've ever met him but would like to. I also haven't ever seen Fountain send a support truck to a Poker run and have Reggie walking around shaking hands. But I haven't been to a whole lot either. My comments weren't made to compare brands only to give credit due to two individuals that deserved it. In an industry that has a notoriously bad reputation for customer service.

Dodn't be jealous you know you want the auto submergence option too. All you got to do is change to the better brand.

Mike and Paul came over to see what the comotion was and told me don't worry about it they'll take care of it go have a good time. With in minutes they're Techs found the offending clamp and fixed it then they proceeded to clean the entire cabin. In about an hour they had the entire mess cleaned up so good you couldn't even tell there was ever any water in there. They didn't owe me anything cause my boat isn't covered anymore by warrenty but they fixed it anyway. They are two top notch people with an exelent team behind them. I know they'll move heaven and earth to be sure the owner of Candy Shop will be happy. I never got a chance to thank them at the Poker run so here is a belated thanks. Mike and Paul Fiore have a fan for life not becuase of their boats but because of their attention to their customers.
I don't doubt this a bit. Mike, Paul, and Bob are some classy individuals no matter who they are dealing with.

I'm in the airport headed back from the show and can tell you not all boat companies treat people with respect. I was treated like a f-cking outcast by one VERY popular companies' salesman over the weekend, all because I don't drive their brand of boat. I'm still a little pissed to be honest. There is no place for this anywhere, and you NEVER know who you're talking down to.

That said, 99% of the rest of the builders were as cool as ever and I enjoyed seeing the familiar faces.

I've had that happen to me by the salesman that had already sold me a boat. I was looking to by a second boat and for some reason that I still don't know he never would return my calls. Needless to say I didn't buy my go fast from them, bad on him because the boat I wanted they still have for sale over a year later and are now advertising "big discounts" on it. That dealer, brand and salesman lost a customer for life. I should thank him cause he forced me to meet better people.

Those are the kind of Selesman that give the whole powerboat industry a bad name. At his rate he will need to find a new occupation
