Default About the GENEROUS, GIVING boaters from Lady Lake

I publicly want to thank 'elimiatethis' and his friend Vinnie! My F250 spun a pulley on the waterpump leaving me stranded in Palatka. Had it not been for Vinnie, using his Yukon we pulled my boat to Lady Lake, and then Chris(eliminatethis) giving me his Suburban and telling me to go ahead and hook up the boat and go home back to Boca Raton and bring the sububan back when I come back up to Palatka to pickup my truck, I'd still be sitting in Palatka!!!! I have never met my generous people in my life! I don't know what we're going to do to repay them!

Once again, Thanks to Chris and Vinnie!!!!!!!

There's nothing like hearing another great story on here when there have been so many bad ones.

We went to Angel's for breakfast. Met a local in there that knew a Father and Son garage that started working on my truck that Sunday. Unfortunately the pulley is a dealer item and he couldn't get it until Monday. As it turns out the dealer had to order it. truck should be done Thursday. Going back up Friday to pick it up. Kay and I would have been stuck in Palatka until then if Eliminatethis hadn't let us use his truck!

Chris(eliminatethis), looks like my truck is going to be fixed by Thursday. Coming up Early Friday to Palatka to get the F250 and then to Lady Lake to drop off your truck. Thanks again.
