Default Velocity

Well i called Velocity today just to BS with them and pick someones brain for some advice on something im doing. All i can say is who ever i talked to i only have 1 word for (DICK) what an A$$ HOle. I always thought us power boat guys didn't mind helping each other out with advice and BSing with each other. Guess i was wrong atleast with Velocity any way after that i know ill never own one of there boats and that guy can eat a dick for all i care and i thought fountain was bad

Call back and ask for Steve. Good people. He is the owner and will definately help you with your problems. If the "Dick" answers tell him you want to speak to someone else. Good luck.

Why don't you tell us a little more as to what kind of questions you asked? Maybe that has something to do with their responces. I've been a VELOCITY owner for some 25 years, know Steve and family very well, very good people,and this is one of the reasons, I wouldn't own anything else. Besides they are FAST.

I bought a 1998 Velocity a couple of years ago from a dealer in Michigan and have done major updating. I've called Kenny and Steve dozens of times and they couldn't have been more helpful. Everything from selling me new fabric for my interior cheaper than I could find it on the Internet, to prop recommendations, drive height recommendations. You name it, they have been extremely helpful. Based on how they've treated me, I wouldn't think of buying anything else. Of course getting the most mph per hp doesn't hurt either. There's a post on here about a guy who bought his dad's old Velocity race boat and restored it with Steve's help. I have never heard anything but kudo's for Steve and his crew. I'd really like to know what you said to get the reaction you did.

I had Velocity work on my Fountain this summer and I couldn't have asked for better customer service. Even after I got my boat back Kenny answered any questions I had day or night. Kenny even went out and tested props with me on his day off and didn't charge me a dime.

I have owned Velocitys for years and you can not ask for better people to deal with,Steve and his family are great people.I am surprised to hear that you were not treated well.
