Default Brand Loyal

I have been bashed for my thoughts on the Bajas (even kicked off a forum ) I have owned. I see other people being pissed with the latest racing results. I guess I offer this which is nothing... How much does this s**t really matter? 300K people died in the last tsunami and I can't name one.... So how important was it? My cousin (one of about 2300 that died on 9/11) but this matters to me and not many others.

This brand loyalty **** ( I am not a feel good can't we all get along type of person) but really, what does all this **** matter? If you have a good experience with a manufacturer then good for you... If you have had a bad experience with a manufacturer then good for you. Don't bash someone on the experience they have had if they want to experess it....

Sorry if people might not get the post but if you are not part of the solution then you might be the problem....

Is everything OK over there Chris??
You're running a brand new Fountain CC, and out of nowhere post a Baja defense.
I have no problem with either, but neither is my first choice. Just my opinion.

Don't understand where this post came from out of nowhere.
Or did I miss something?

Old story man... I just hear about it anytime I am happy with another brand of boat that I no longer own....

I'm guessing something struck a nerve in one of the Fountain posts.
I have no brand loyalty. I just like my boats to be measured based on the hull and not a beak and swim platform. To make my point, I've owned a 24 Outlaw, 28 pantera and 32 Active Thunder.

I agree -- just like with cars we have owned many from most manufactures and all have their problems it is just how you handle them... Yeah -- our 292 was a 27' with a 2ft molded in swim platform...

As far as Reggie is concerned, we are all talking about him so he is doing something right. Heck, if anything, it is fun to watch I don't care what he says.

Since I was dragged into this I will respond with my reasoning. Take it as you wish.

I don't begrudge anyone of their opinion and I would never bash anyone personally over their opinion. If someone comes on here and asks "what do you think of Baja" then I say swing away, it is your god given right. What I don't understand is why people feel the need to spout negativity about Baja in every thread having to do with a comparison of other brands. At no point was Baja brought up in that video or in that thread yet someone still felt the need to throw a little dart at the Baja brand with a comment. I guess I am getting a little crabby from raking leaves all weekend and watching the cold fronts coming through.

Somebody pass the beer and popcorn, I feel jack frost on the window.
