I think advise from manufacturers on specific posts is an invaluable resource.

This is what I hear over and over:

1. Our company policy is we are not allowed to post on there
2. I don't post on there because some "know it all" is just going to come tell me he knows more.

#2 is what I here alot


I wish more would post on here and share there knowledge

agreed. knowledge is great, only when it comes from someone who has years of professional experience in the business. The problem is you have a few guys who buy and build a few boats, not only later to go through a few shady shams, and believe they know it all. It takes years in this business, and you do it for the love of the sport, cause you sure are not going to get rich off of it.

We have lost a LOT of knowledgeable(?) people around here due to "know-it-alls" that beat them down. I miss them and their wisdom.

McCollinsTN comes to mind among many others I am sure have quietly left us.

I have noticed more behind-the-scenes people contributing lately. It is a welcome addition.

Personally I enjoy when the manufacturer's or their rep's get involved in a thread, they tend to bring facts and not stories to the discussions.

It's always hard sometimes to wade through the b.s. to try and figure out what's real, just someone's bias or perception on a particular subject.

Especially when your trying to weigh the "pro's & con's" of something your interested in.

I hope it continues it makes for good informative reading at times...
