Its now 3:30Pm in North Carolina and I have not been called back. I doubt I'll get called today and Gail (Jeff Harriss' secretary) said he is going on vacation tomarrow. So it seems I'm Fuc%'ed.

I called Reggie a couple of hours ago and got through to his secretary. I told her my story and she went on to say how busy they are. At that time i reminded her about how busy we all are!!! And to not return a phone call after 2 weeks and 14 messages is unacceptable. She said she would let Jeff Harris know I'm waiting for a call. (Whatever that means.)

I contacted my lawyer and he is putting together my options and drafting a letter.

Here's what I want:
1. A review of the work order - Warranty & not warranty work to be done.

2. Completion date

3. Bill $$$

4. A sign -off inspection by me before delivery of the boat

5. Shrink wrap boat before departure

Hopeful I'll get somewhere. I'm not trying to be unreasonable here. I just want to talk to somebody and move-on...

Troutly: your story scared the hell out of me and when I read that I contacted my lawyer.

There is absolutley no way I could sit still on that one... I would have been standing in the lobby or the factory floor a long time ago...or bailing my wife out of a N.C jail... Hell hath no furry...

it is hard to believe anyone would treat a customer this way.
although I am running into a few snags myself on an engine and drive...what the heck is with these people..????????

Can you found a cheap flight to the area with a reasonable drive over. I know it sounds like a pain the ass trip but it might be worth it.

If only you could go out and buy a new fully loaded Fountain, take delivery and STOP PAYMENT on the funds, Wanna know who would be calling you !!! Reg himself....that would get the bum's attention.

I doubt the dealers can offer any assistance, because when people act they are acting, they just don't give a **** and that sucks.

I agree that a letter from the Attorney is the right thing to do only that costs you more money for their Fu*k'n around.

I expect to be flying out shortly. As soon as I know who will be there to see me. The plane ticket isn't the issue but the time off work and leaving the family is the hard part.

What's amazing is all this can be avoided if that Jeff Harris guy would call me back!!!!

He's there right now. Its 4:30PM in North Carolina and basically he goes on vacation in 30minutes. Why won't this guy call be back???

I'm not willing to hear the "I'm really busy" excuse. We are all busy. JUST CALL ME NOW!!!!

Post his number, I have nothing better to do than make a few phone calls to North Carolina. Maybe someone else can get him on the phone for you .
