I have some pretty life changing decisions to be made here in the very near future. Racegirl is right, basically I am just Adam.

I do not have a website nor do I have 2 nickles to rub together to get a website. I have been doing my best to keep customers happy so that they will spread the word for me.

That is a great find! I did not know bootdaddy had put that up recently. I have a ton of pictures to add to that thread. It was the very first project to go through the shop in Checkmate's building. I did not have near the equipment or supplies that I have now. Interesting thinking back on that project....

That is correct. That is the address of Checkmate Marine also. I spoke with the post master back when the business first started. They would not issue a new or different address because the area that I have rented is "attached" to the Checkmate facility.

Wouldn't it be easier to bring your nickles south?

Good luck on the business Adam, your reputation is great but it is a hard business to be in right now.

I enjoy a good challenging project from start to finish.

I see a OSO poster mentioned that somebody was using my name “without my permission”. I will assure you that will never ever happen.. Yes I was involved with a business venture that did not get very far, due to me being geographically in the wrong location.. The company has since been resolved and Adam who is a fried and one talented individual has moved onto his own venture.

I am always available for any questions;

Bobby is one of the most respected individuals that I have ever had the honor of meeting in the marine industry.

Class act, gentleman, professional and a legend!

Bobby I hope the economy turns sometime soon so you can start building boats again!

Best Regards,
Dave Patnaude
