I have negotiated with Randy & Von and the LC crew on a bunch of boats.

On two occasions I bought from another entity but Randy was very professional and helpful.

In February we agreed on a deal on the MTI Drambuie on Ice and the deal when as well as can be.

The whole team at Lake Cumberland was very helpful in getting all the information I requested in vesting the boat in order for me to be comfortable paying for a boat that I wanted to be sure was without liens on it.

A lot of people have stories and so forth with a lot of dealers but there are always two sides to every story and I feel if someone cannot resolve them with the entities involved without having to bicker & insinuating crap here, they either;

- Had a weak or unreasonable claim to start with and got their fragile little nose out of joint...

or

- They did not do their homework before dealing with the entity that wronged them and opened themselves up to be taken advantage of. Sorry but when this happens to me I only have myself to blame. (I'm not to found of the entity that wronged me but ultimately it's my own fault for dealing with them in the first place.... Lesson learned)

Very well put and once again great project with DOI, glad to see you are one of the few that buys a project boat and has it running the same year!

When i was shopping for a fountain , i came across them numberous times , but never called because they didnt post prices , actually wrote the number down , but never called . I do not understand the strategy behind this?

oh by the way i wasnt just window shopping .

I went down the shoreway yesterday and was shocked how many speedboats they had out front.

Yep.

Like many I'm sure, I never had a doubt that GL would get DOI on the water asap. He's not the classic project guy that posts pictures of them taking the boat APART, but none of it ever going back together. The thing I hoped most for on DOI, was that he went back with the original look of the boat. That was key.

True, but only a Canadian Frog could love that paint scheme enough to RESTORE IT.



JK, GL, I think it's cool. You're not, but the boat is.
