And that, my friend, is the bottom line.
He who can get over will.

If I gave you a boat say a 94 cig $0.00 just signed the title over to you (no money changing hands) and told you one motor ran and the other didn't. But come to find out the one running motor was froze up. I would get it running for you even if it meant buying you a new motor.

All a man has is his integrity:
A quality characterized by honesty, reliability, and fairness, developed in a relationship over time. Customers and clients have much more confidence when dealing with a business when they can rely on the representations made. Integrity can also be rebuilt just like a house blown over by the wind but to do it, a man must want to. VV

Longer than that guys. He put it in dry storage, next to my PQ, two winters ago. When I brought mine out of storage last spring to get it ready for trade was when I noticed the damage from the little kiss with the this TG.

Just want to clear that up.

Your not really blackballing a dealer. Stacy is a mechanic, not a salesman. Was the boat bought from Stacy or the dealership?

He may work for a dealer, but I believe Stacy owned the boat.
I think Stacy got the boat w/ the idea of fixing it up and selling it and he had it for well over a year. The boat was run in a poker run about a year ago.

I hope everything works out for Dustin!!

I won't beat this dead horse anymore. My primary reasoning is the price of $50K DOES represent the condition of the boat......so I see no misrepresentation. I'm a numbers guy so you can tell me everything I want to hear, but the numbers never lie as is in business and in the end thats all that matters......... to me anyway.

Typical.... one of the main reasons I got out of Texas is because so many more people on average are just plain two faced, dishonest and have hidden agendas. It was pathetic. Lived in 12 states over the last 15 years and could not believe how Texas really was. Met some fine folks there, but "overall" there were/are many more two-faced dishonest people that didnt know the value of a handshake and had no value on what their reputation means. Everyone thinks Texans are so manly and tough..... What a joke.

So when there are 50 people disagreeing with you in this thread that should tell you something. Numbers don't lie.

I don't want to bash...but you are an complete idiot, stuck on some weird tangent about the sale price justifying a complete misrepresentation of what was purchased.
