Guys I don't think it was quite as bad as those reading this thread might think. It is still one impressive ride. I did notice the areas spoken about.

I think GatorOne posting that it was hull #2 has no implications that the thread will go poof. You know what they say about assuming something....

i'm not saying you were gloating,if the guy that had the issue thought that it was handled sufficiently enough to delete his thread, then we should respect his decision, people had the opportunity to speak about it while it was up. As in most contracts and settlements usually their is a clause/asking for privacy. I poofed my own thread because I think Cig finally stepped up and did the right thing and I wasn't going to let anyone bash them on my thread.
As for the golddigger situation, no offense but you didn't lay out the money to have it built, what makes you think you are entitled to the answers. Does Gatorone borrow money from you that you feel you need to be answered too? Does OL call you for setup details that you feel you need to be answered too? obviously if thoce two wanted the last detail of the boat public they would be public. Whats left in both of these situations above is people on a forum saying I told you so, or arm chair quarterbacking.

what the hell have I started? I really was impressed with the damn boat but was it worth $2 MILLION DOLLARS. Only the gentleman that bought it can answer that! i guess value is determined by one's passion for a particular item.

It's a turbin boat, its a very different setup. You don't rush these things.

Jesh, people LOVE bad news....
