I hope you guys can come to an agreement and both be happy.

I personally would have NEVER allowed the seller to get his own survey......what were you thinking??? I would have had another survey done by a surveyor of my choice.

I also would have had the owner there at when finalizing the deal and ran a sea trial to make sure everything was good to go. Sorry, Fubard, but I think you were somewhat "negligent" in making sure the "terms" were met at time of sale.

Just a guess, but, If my bride-to-be (in a few hours) was on my azz to get to the wedding, I'd be calling every time she asked me to - I've got to live with her the rest of my life, don't want to start out this way.

In regards to owning a trailer Co., or Marina - what difference does it make? This was a deal between two individuals. I'm not saying this is the case in this transaction, but I've been guilty of stretching the truth in the past, I think everyone has.

We all had our college days, and don't tell me that anyone here has ever not stretched the truth to "seal the deal" at a bar with a little hottie while in there 20's
Same deal.

Fubar,

Not trying to keep this going, but it just doesn't make sense to me.

Did you really schedule time to have a second sea trial? I find it hard to believe that Marc would have left you with the boat if you didn't pay for the boat in full. I also find it hard to believe that you would have wired/handed off money before hand if there really was a second sea trial dependent on sale.

Did you sign a sales agreement and slip money under the door?

Since Marc wasn't there I have to assume that you wired the money to him beforehand and he already had a signed sales agreement therefore you probably had no intention of meeting with him.

I'll answer two more questions just cause fubar seems to find it important

NO i NEVER Owned the Wharf Marina nor did I imply that I did at any time
I was however General Manager during the time i was there

Second Yes I did own Manning trailers at one time and No i dont own it now

Both items can be verified

boatme - I didn't mean to imply you personally embellished the truth - just that I could see how it could happen.
I still don't see it's relevance to the point at hand anyway.
Personally, I would feel bad for the guy, but at the same time, I have to admit I'd feel a little relief that it sold before I had problem with it myself.
I think you did the right thing by offering to help out in repairs - more than the right thing.
And the fact that you asked the question here while this was going on shows integrity.
I'm good with that.

WHEW! That was a novel's worth of reading!

Fubard, sucks you bought a boat that had issues but atleast Marc asked OSO members what he should do to make it right and he sent you something ($1,000 or so).

Now Marc and I have sparred online over a few things so you know I would love to hammer him on this one but I think he just embellished a bit and sold you a hi-performance boat with lots of hours on it.

I think he spun the after story to his favor but I don't think he sold you the boat knowing that it had a bad motor. He is well known in the industry and I don't think he would tarnish his reputation for a few thousand dollars.

Good luck but I think I hear the bell ringing and this will soon be a locked thread. Fubard, welcome to OSO and you have a cool boat that probably runs great now so hope to see you at some Florida Poker Runs.
