The show has indeed started and it is just getting to the good part. If this is a hoax, I say we all make a road trip to visit Merc575. I am hoping that it is a mixup and that nobody is lying, but this is sounding fishy to me!

I can name this toon in 2 words. ( theavin bastard ) It really pisses me off to think that sombody would cheat,lie and steal from the good people that make up OSO. I think this guy needs a close encounter with a 6000 rpm cleaver.(just kidding) But I do think by the responses to the original thread from MERC575 that it just goes to show that power boaters are some of the best people to know. It is just to bad that we also have people like MERC575 to remind us that some people really suck.

Believe it or not, there are still people expressing their condolences on the "death of a member" thread. I believe there is enough evidence, the strongest of which is no comment and/or retracting from MERC575 or the 'misses'.

I think, in all good conscience, that thread should, at the very least, be temporarily suspended the Board God, until this is proven true or not. After all, this action has been recently taken on other topics. It's just not right that more OSO members are duped by this scumbag...........

I was in the process of buying a prop from Mr. Smith via OSO. I had posted that I needed a 24P Bravo 1 and he e-mailed me back that he had one in the box for $200. Sounded too good so I asked for something too make me feel good about doing this. He sent me pictures of the prop and tried to make me feel at ease about an internet purchase. I waited a couple days as I still wasn't quite sure, but then I bit. I e-mailed him several times since Fri. or Sat. and just got a response back from "Mrs Smith" yesterday. I still have most of the e-mails I believe, but I'm not computer savvy enough to know how to post them. Just like above I was going to send $200 plus shipping, cashier's check.

Reminds me of the Johnny Cash song, "One Piece at a Time".

What a loser!

And I sent condolances to the Mrs. "Dohh"

I am sorry that some of you may have been ripped off. Wow.
