We all know the Trick Marine issue has been beaten to death, and Fred certainly could have saved some face by stepping up early in the issue with an explanation to us all.

I would certainly hope at this point in this bad novel that Mike Schultz of Gaffrig Performance would step up to the plate and give a clear and concise account of the situation. After all, Gaffrig is written all over the instrument panels and controls on these boats we know and love.

As a Business owner, I would not want my name in anything that has to do with a bad business, I also would not use the same website format as they did, it looks the like the same company. I would think Gaffrig could get thier own part suppliers and make thier own website without buying Trick Marines site, website are not that expensive to make or maintain? It does not make any business sense to me, but I am sure there is a reson they did this, unless they are keeping Fred around and in business.

Out here on the right coast my gauges say "LIVORSI".

It's quite simple, if you don't feel comfortable don't do it or patronize them. Nuff said.

I know I will never have another gaffrig product on any boat of mine, and will tell others the same.

Why change the whole name?

Should have just simplified the name change to Hat Trick Marine.
