New to boating world and OSO. Seems as though like any other club or sport, this is a very well known community. This post has already over 8300 views. The culprit will be out more than $7500 (need to out the guy). Respect and reputation are everything. Sorry about the trailer.

Are these D-Bags members here at OSO? Can they see that if they don't step up their future marine transactions are numbered? I hope they have other talents cause performance boating isn't going to work out with transactions like this. Some people are dumb or Stoned & some are Dumb & Stoned, thats what this seems like Friggin Spicolli

I remember borrowing a trailer one time and buying carpet in Miami to repair the bunks; and then there was the second time I "borrowed" one and three new tires and 2,400 miles later, I returned it. Nothing like Monteagle, TN on a Saturday night, in the rain, with no lug and wrench and...without a gun. I have my own trailer now.

I say paybacks are a muther...beyond that there's not much you can do besides rat the guy out here.

This trailer-borrower-guy is acting like he started selling boats at Fort Apache !

Dont you worry Wild, your FAST BOAT(S) will still be fast without the COMonwealth of a trailer !

Now it makes sense from what I have heard about his ethics from people I trust. Thought I might want to buy a boat form him until I heard a similar story.

I fully understand the reasoning for not outing them anytime soon. I too would have a tough time doing it.

Having said that, give us their fax number. It's been awhile since we've done a group fax bomb to get someone's attention. I believe the last time we did it the guilty party started communicating rather quickly.

Fax number?
